I love to tell stories while also displaying different emotions using photography. I enjoy going out for shoots with my friends and experimenting more with portraiture and editorial styles. But along with that, I love to capture beautiful scenes that can remind one of many cherished memories. I think photography is also an effective way to show people what we’re really losing to plastic pollution and climate change. I want to make a statement about our usage of single-use plastics and how it affects our perishing ecosystems. It’s hard to imagine life without plastic, as we use it practically every day. This image symbolizes the need to overcome our “tunnel of plastic” to restore our environments. The landscape is hidden behind the plastic and we can’t fully imagine the beautiful scenery as the plastic is taking over. I hope people can contemplate this image further—as it can be interpreted in many ways—and think about how we use plastic.
