이름: 티피(1990~ 女 Tippi Degré)

출생지: Namibia

부모님(Alain Degré, Sylvie Robert)이 아프리카에서 야생동물 사진을 찍는 프리랜서 작가입니다.

기저귀 차고 부터 주위의 동물들과 어울려 자라온 관계로 야생동물들과 의사소통이 가능(?)하다고 하네요.

10년간 동물들과 생활하던 아프리카 정글을 떠나 Madagascar 거쳐 파리로 이주하여 학교생활을 하였으나...

적응이 힘들어 개인 교습으로 기초 교육을 마쳤고,

현재는 La Sorbonne Nouvelle University에서 영화를 전공하고 있는 대학생 입니다.

졸업후 외교관이 되어 다시 아프리카로 돌아가고 싶다는 군요.^^

 

아래 사진들을 보고 있자니 마음이 싹 정화되는 느낌입니다.

 

6~7년전에 방영한 내용이 긴 다큐멘터리가 있다는데.... 구할수가 없네요...

혹시 아시는분 계신가요?~

Tippi Degre, the real life Mowgli

Her "brother" was an elephant, her best friend a leopard and her playground the African bush. Tippi Degre has been labelled the 'real-life Mowgli'

Now Tippi's new book, 'Tippi: My Book of Africa', showcases the magical images that have led to comparisons with Rudyard Kipling's young hero in The Jungle Book


Tippi Degre,The Real Life Mowgli

Born in Windhoek, Namibia in 1990, Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degre lived with her French parents, wildlife photographers Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre. The three of them travelled extensively through Africa on a unique and incredible adventure

She showed an unusual bond between man and beast. Sylvie, Tippi's mother, explains: "She was in the mindset of these animals. She believed the animals were her size and her friends. She was using her imagination to live in these different conditions"

Tippi Degre,The Real Life Mowgli

Using her innocence and imagination, the young 'Mowgli' befriended one of the giants of the animal kingdom, Abu the African elephant

"She had no fear," says Sylvie. "She did not realise she was not the same size as Abu the elephant. She would look into its eyes and speak to him"
