I was a photographer for over 40 years. Now I paint.
I watch our species acting essentially as a terminating parasite on the planet and its life. As any banker will be glad to inform you, making withdrawals with no matching or greater deposits can only end in one way.
We could have built civilization judging every action by the question “Does this action harm life and Earth?” We could rebuild civilization that way as well, but I am not holding my breath.
This is what I paint.
Regardless, in the blink of a geologic eye we will all be a thin line in the sandstone. See you there.
