Born in 1979, Ulric Collette, self-taught photographer, studied art and graphic design in Quebec city in the late 90s and now work as art director for Collette, a communication studio in Quebec region.

Such beautiful illustrations. These are created by the Barcelona-based illustrator Jaume Montserrat, who’s passionate with nature, society and traveling. He draws trying to bend those three worlds.
Jaume found inspiration for his project ‘Emptyland’, when flying home from South America to Spain. He fell asleep and imagined waking up on an island where he lives for 29 days with other animals.
He explains: “On this island, there was only one animal from each specimen (kind of like Noah’s Ark). All of them were empty, asexual and immortal. They didn’t need to hunt, nor were they scared of being hunted – so there was a perfect symbiosis.”
He and the wildlife lived free from worries in this dream, and that empty paradise is what sparked these images.
Such an awesome (ongoing) project!
