Pollution and climate change affects the whole world and everyone living on it. After decades of us putting harmful gases into the atmosphere and leaving plastics and trash in the streets, the environment is finally wearing down and the negative effects are starting to show. Some are still choosing to ignore the signs, whereas others are fighting to stop it. In my photo, I capture a glimpse of what some may see or feel regarding the issue of climate change. Large pieces of garbage litter the otherwise dark composition. The garbage covers and frames the subject—a teenager—leaving him isolated, tired, and looking outward for something better. The clarity of the garbage reflects our understanding of the consequences of climate change, with the pieces most apparent closest to the center. Toward the edge of the composition, the pieces become warped and distorted, representing the unknown scale and culmination of our neglect on the planet. With so much unclear about this issue, who knows how long we have before the damage is irreversible.
