  • Dual

    Fraught with tension and drama, DUAL is a photographic imagination of a standoff between man and nature – a culmination of centuries of worldly struggle between both entities. While earth appears to be the sacrificial lamb in man’s relentless drive towards development, there is no clear sign of who is gaining the upper hand in this uneasy conflict. Most evident, is perhaps man’s dual role as an aggravator and savior of our ailing environment. The work also stems from a personal struggle in striking a balance between an urban lifestyle and environmental conservation. Can photography help reconcile this standoff without our planet having to die? What kind of world do we want to live in? 2013
