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.


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