silk paper has been chosen for the French edition of "50 Years of Wildlife
Photographer of the Year", a stunning retrospective of nature photography.
"Wildlife Photographer of the Year" is an annual competition
recognizing the world’s greatest nature photographs. With this prestigious
contest, celebrating its 50th edition this year, two key UK institutions - the
Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide - help to raise awareness of and
protect the diversity of life on Earth.
Lecta has had the pleasure of participating in the French edition of this extraordinary
volume, "L'Art de la photographie de nature", published by Biotope.
Condat’s coated silk paper, resistant with a satin finish, allows the “wild”
nature of the most beautiful work from the world’s leading nature photographers
to emerge. Photographers such as Frans Lanting, Jim Brandenburg, Vincent
Munier, Michael Nichols and Paul Nicklen, to name a few, have had a profound
influence on the evolution of wildlife photography, which has become a fully
fledged art form in itself.
From vibrant color to pure deep whites, Condat silk reconciles extremes for
high-contrast results in nearly 150 exceptional prints that will delight
photography fans and nature lovers alike.
The partnership between Biotope, a publishing company known for its
biodiversity publications, and Lecta, a paper manufacturing group recognized
and awarded for its commitment to sustainable development, is no coincidence.
Lecta considers its business activity to be inextricably linked to a respectful
attitude towards the environment and society.
“L'Art de la photographie de nature”, available in major bookstores and on the
www.leclub-biotope.com website, is a brilliant example of paper as the natural
choice for a more sustainable world.
