Water is a precious commodity that we take for granted every single day. It provides nourishment and sustenance to all living things. It determines the quality of life for ourselves, our families, our communities. Without it, we would perish.

“…dirty water is the world’s biggest health risk, and continues to threaten both quality of life and public health in the United States. When water from rain and melting snow runs off roofs and roads into our rivers, it picks up toxic chemicals, dirt, trash and disease-carrying organisms along the way.” National Resources Defense Council…https://www.nrdc.org/issues/water

Another issue I am passionate about is Plastic. Plastic bags and bottles are thrown away every day. These items end up in landfills, the oceans, as well as in forests, creeks and rivers. It is cause for great concern as it affects not only humans but wildlife.

As a photographer, I feel obliged to not only share my personal vision for the world, but to acknowledge and communicate the environmental issues impacting our world today. We, as citizens of Earth, have a responsibility to save our planet. We must continue to explore avenues of sustainability, to hold those accountable for implementing policies, to protest what is wrong and to stand up for what is right.
