The beauty of nature captured by Korean photographer Ahae, on view at the Tuileries

A meticulous, almost maniacal enterprise. For two years, Ahae has taken pictures from the same window in his studio. Two-thousand, three-thousand, sometimes even four-thousand shots a day using his state-of-the-art digital camera. As a result, this artist has collected a million photographs that reproduce everything and nothing, nature, animals—scenes that are unusual, intriguing, profound or beautiful. As in previous exhibitions, Ahae lets nature speak for itself, and shows it in all its myriad facets. This 71-year-old photographer is a dedicated environmentalist and uses his art to further this cause.
