What is imagea.org?

imagea.org is a website which publishes all of the photos taken on his travels. The aim of this site is to encourage you to go and have a look for yourself, with your own eyes, at what you can see through "the eye" of imagea.org’s camera.

80% of the things that imagea.org has photographed and which you will find on this site will no longer exist by the end of this century. Nature will be unable to stand up to the selfishness of man that will have destroyed, in the space of just 2 centuries what it took nature thousands of millions of years to create.

Real wealth is not something tangible that you can store up and leave on this planet but "real wealth" is all of the intangible things you can carry about with you and which will always remain inside you. Your eyes are the gateway through which this wealth enters.

Seeing an Arctic tern flying over your head in the Faroe Islands, or the midnight sun reflected in the sea in the Lofoten Islands, or finding yourself surrounded by penguins in Antarctica… all these are golden moments which, one after another, will make you richer. They will be your real treasure.

On this site you will see only shadows of the things of beauty which make up our planet. If you would like to see the originals, just like the prisoner in Plato’s Cavern Myth, you will have to throw off your chains and go and see what lies outside the cavern. Go on, your trip will be well worth it. Don’t wait until it’s too late for you.

In the grand scheme of things and the Universe, our planet is but a tiny cell which we leave when we die and will never see again. It would be absurd to spend our entire lives without having toured this cell when so many splendid places are just waiting to be seen, heard and touched.
To stay is to exist, but to travel is to live - Gustave Nadaud. So, live!
 

Where does the name “imagea.org” come from?

"imagea" is a contraction of two words: "image" (no need to explain what that means) and "gea" which appears in Ancient Greek creation myths. The Greeks saw Gea, who emerged from the original chaos, as the personification of the Earth. So "Imagea" means "images of the world".

 

Dedication

This website is dedicated to G.Z., without whom none of this would have existed, and to the 5% of human beings still sufficiently philosophical, sensitive and intelligent to know that we are only guests on this planet and nothing belongs to us. The remaining 95% will see that their selfishness and stupidity contribute to irreversible destruction each and every day.

 

The imagea.org logo

The imagea.org logo was designed by Sasa Antonijevic an artist and designer who has already won a number of international prizes for design; he currently works for various British and American clients. The logo shows an Arctic tern (a bird which, like imagea.org, travels a lot and likes cold climates). The blues represent the sky and the sea, two elements which are to be found in all imagea.org’s photos. The orange (a sign of life) is there to back up the slogan "the moment becomes eternal". 

 

Who is the owner of imagea.org ?
