Yann Arthus-Bertrand: “Capitalism is destroying the planet”

“, Photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand continues to exhibit his incredible photos and to preach the good word about the state of our world as soon as he can. A selection of his large formats made during his “Homeproject is currently being exhibited, and for the first time, in Bayonne, at DIDAM, the exhibition venue of the city.

He always does the same job: photographing beautiful landscapes from around the world and pointing out his terrible destruction by humanity. But the photographer’s speech, often mocked by environmentalists for his use of polluting helicopters and his links with the large companies that finance his projects, has become a little muscular over time.

Today at the age of 70, Yann Arthus-Bertrand draws a very alarming report on the global warming of our planet, confirmed by current scientific data:

“We do not have the right to be pessimistic. It’s too late to be pessimistic … ” He also says he no longer believes in political ecology and denounces the misdeeds of growth: “Capitalism is destroying the planet completely. We should learn to live better with a little less! “
