Driving Question: How can I use photography to raise awareness about our human behavior’s impact on the environment?

Project Description

My personal project this term is a photography project about human behavior’s impact on the environment. While wondering why we are not acting as urgently as we should for the climate crisis, I found people often see the crisis as a distant challenge, both in time and in space. Through this project, I wanted to raise awareness about the impact of our daily and individual actions on the environment, and ultimately, bring people closer to the challenge.

Reflection:

“My main takeaway from this project is that, no matter how global any challenge is, the individual action will end up making the difference.”
