A PICTURE HAS A STORY TO TELL

“In photography, there is reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality”

– Alfred Stieglitz

A scenic sight of towering and strong mountains standing together, alternately positioned and offering clear views of the distant spaces. The rise of the sun firing up it’s beaming rays effortlessly kissing the surface of the earth, rejuvenating every biodiversity that comes along its way. A river stream mirroring the uprise and the warmth of the mighty sun. Free flowing winds flaunting with your hair under open skies… A perfect riverscape one deserves to enjoy a quiet moment with a feeling ‘this is life’.

An obstructed view of the skies with tall skyscrapers hindering the sight of what’s on the other side. It defuses the tranquil of a natural arrangement by mother nature. A convoy of hazy clouds, bearing dust and toxic particles some scattered and some screaming to unleash itself with the growing burden of co2 emissions around. A deploring imagery of a cityscape attempting to shake you off.

With our need and greed to create, innovate destroy and re-create, the planet is heating up. The elements of nature are changing its course and the earth is ‘Reshaping‘ – the more we tamper – the more it will give back in return. Nature is a ‘Miracle’ we depend on and the key to a greener planet is in your hands.
