GAIA

GAIA

GAIA—a creative project designed by Guy Laliberté for ONE DROP—is a body of work bearing witness to the beauty of the planet, as well as the fragility of Earth with regards to the universe. In September 2009, Guy Laliberté became the first Canadian private space explorer. During his 11-day stay on board the ISS, Laliberté carried out his Poetic Social Mission and chose to use this unique opportunity to raise individual and community awareness of water-related issues and to help achieve sustainable change in terms of universal water access and protection.

Through the lens of a camera always at hand, Guy Laliberté witnessed the beauty of continents that seemed to float in water. He took thousands of pictures, both to remember and to share his odyssey with us all.

  • THE PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

    GAIA is a free traveling photography exhibition, presented in public places and in galleries, which showcases a selection of breathtaking large-format photographs taken by Guy Laliberté aboard the International Space Station. These original shots of the Earth were captured 350 kilometres from its surface and bear witness to the beauty and fragility of the Earth within the universe. Take a look at our Facebook photo albums for a preview:

    WORKS OF ART

    The GAIA experience has also been made into a book, available in three editions, consisting of captivating photographs and limited edition images that reflect a world of a thousand wonders. Each image is accompanied by a story, a tale of nature that is sometimes transformed and often untamed.
