In modern Western Society, we’ve lost our connection to nature, and we treat it with such little respect. As most of us know, we’re causing the planet great harm by the industrial farming practices, fast fashion, dirty energy, fossil fuels, and overpopulation, among other issues.
This series juxtaposes the beauty of man made structures with flowers, trees, and the ocean, with the hope people will spend some mindful moments appreciating the the textures, colors, and shapes. I used architecture in this series to emphasize how capable we are as a human race. When we collaborate and work together we are able to achieve amazing feats. It exemplifies the need for balance in a modern society. We share this Earth, and moderation is key to its future.
