Environmental Conservancy Through Nature Photography by, Molly Jo Triplett
“Over his head were the maple buds,
And over the tree was the moon,
And over the moon were the starry studs,
That drop from the angel’s shoon (shoes.)”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1838
How can we positively shift the world by taking photos of trees?
Of Rocks? Of Leaves? Of Water?
In the present our connection to the digital realm is taking up a majority of our attention and consciousness; and this tide is only growing.
It is more common to see families engaged with cell phones than with each other. Nature can easily be pushed aside as we spend our time indoors, disconnected from the earth mother that sustains us.
By spending attention and creating art with nature as the subject, we are reminded of our innate connection and shared energy with the natural world.
By sharing our energy through giving gratitude and love to the trees, and the rivers, we remember our own true nature.
We begin the process of making strides to protect, sustain and heal the planet; now and for the futures of those we love, for generations to come.
