Eric de Ville

1956 - , Belgium
Babel Towers
Fascinating and menacing at the same time, Eric De Ville’s Towers of Babel represent the challenge of our modern societies: humans build increasingly arrogant and excessive cities but must work together to find a response to the management of both their territory and natural resources. The photographic vision of Eric de Ville simultaneously explores themes of biodiversity and urbanism, diversity of people and the multiplicity of culture, and the precarious balance of nature and the city. The Tower of Babel also arises as a metaphor for the vanity of man and our ability to question our present.
