Georges Carillo’s wildlife photographs adorn a new dinner service in the Chambord collection.
• Dubbed « shadow catcher », Georges Carillo lives in the midst of his animal subjects. He is the first wildlife photographer to be invited to stay in the grounds of the Chambord Château as an artist in residence. He uses his fine-tuned technique, demanding both a keen eye and shrewd approach, to capture candid pictures of stag, hare, pheasant and the like. He portrays all the grace and poetry of the instant, a silhouette, a flap of wing … Working in black and white and exclusively on Sologne wildlife, Georges Carillo has achieved distinction in the realm of wildlife photography.
• The Chambord collection offers a table service spotlighting Sologne wildlife and nature. The combination of black and white brings personality and distinction to this new timeless range which goes well with all styles of surroundings. Wild animals captured in full movement seem to come alive on plates, mugs and dishes. Dinner plates, soup plates and dessert plates are enhanced with a rim hand-painted in black.
• To bring movement and life to these pieces, wild animals are pictured in portrait form or on the move in their natural habitat. A notable feature is the stag, king of the forest of Chambord since the dawn of time, a figure of power and tenacity.
• This dinner service, in black and white, has been selected as the official dinnerware for Chambord castle gala evenings and will bring a touch of style and refinement.
