PROJECT : TO ABSENT FRIENDS
A collection of animal poetry, some species specific, some more generalised. The aim of this project is to add an emotional perspective to the current mass-extinction event that humans are causing. As self-appointed keepers of The Earth, we have a lot to learn still, and we must do so before it is too late for our fellow terrestrial travellers. I have included excerpts of accurate scientific data, up-to-date survey results and statistics to contextualise the problem.
The exploration of 'Man' as the effective catalyst for disastrous change is one that runs constant throughout the pieces.
Although this is an ongoing project, the rights to all images and poems are reserved, and any and all circulation of such materials must be done at the express written consent of the owner ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Drop me an e-mail, I would be happy to help! This is just a sample of the complete collection, as I am currently working on a charity photo book. Get in touch to learn more.
