Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson Bio
About The Artist
Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson have been working together as a husband and wife team since 1997, when they began investigating and documenting the relationship between the indigenous human and natural world on five continents.
Their concerns about climate change, globalization and the future of life on earth started in the late 1990s as they witnessed drought, fire, and floods around the world. Their first book of photography in black and white, Lost Africa: The Eyes of Origin, explores the ecological and man-made challenges facing tribes from Ethiopia to Namibia. Their second book, Walking Thunder: In the Footsteps of the African Elephant, is a testament to the African elephant.
Now, traveling with their son Lysander, Cyril and Marie are working on a dedication to three endangered bioregions and their iconic keystone species—the Arctic, the African savannah, and the forests of India. This project is called In Predatory Light.
