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.
Where does the name
“imagea.org” come from?
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".
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
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 ?
is a non-profit organisation financed by imageafoundation (owner
of imagea.org brand and website).
