I’ve always loved being outdoors; I feel grounded and humbled by its spaciousness and beauty, reconnected within myself, and inspired through clearer and more creative thinking. Benefiting so much from nature, I often feel that the rise in anxiety and depression is a symptom that we are becoming increasingly detached from the natural world.
For millions of years, nature has been our home, yet we have removed ourselves favouring artificial virtual worlds. It worries me how this detachment is heading towards increasingly destructive decisions and disrespectful behaviour – as Ansel Adams said a hundred years ago, “It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment”.
This world sustains our very existence. Scientists delve ever deeper into space, searching for habitable planets, which are well beyond our reach. Even if we could travel the phenomenal distance, would we abuse that world also? It seems that we must shift our attitudes towards nature and one another to learn how we can coexist to sustain our future.
Photography has given me a medium to connect with and express our natural world’s beauty; it helps me connect with a deeper empathy, self-learning, and increased appreciation.
I aspire to create images that connect with nature’s spirit and beauty, hoping that these images can inspire and help us see the miracle in the mundane. To create images that reconnect us to the natural world and one another, deepen our empathy, and connect us in a way that supports humankind’s sustainability, the world’s ecology, and the planet itself. And, best of all, to inspire us to get out and enjoy the fresh air, play in the streams and get our hands dirty exploring under stones.
