“it’s frightening to think about how I won’t be alive to see nature take back the earth but it’s also comforting to know that by the time nature does take back the earth, I will be closer to nature than I ever could be in human form.”
yesterday was my birthday so I went and shot the Courts and Whitman, right off of campus…I’ve been wanting to shoot this spot for a minute; yesterday I happened to park next to it on my way to work; so once I got off and made it back to my car, I plugged up my phone and forgot out everything else, my birthday present to myself.
We live in a world that does not realize that there is good in the bad, and bad in the good. We live in a world that will kill an individual based on that person’s skin color. We live in a world that will cast out a human being for loving someone of the same gender. We live in a world that disgusts me more than anything else.
I wish to be a force of change. I wish to show that all human beings can live in harmony regardless of sexuality, gender, skin color, nationality, and all other boundaries separating us.
Here are some photos I shot at the end of June and beginning of July. I travelled from Seattle up north to Whistler and many places in between. I enjoyed shooting how green and lush the landscape is. Nature taking back from humanity is a constant theme up there. The weeds grow at an extremely fast rate and quickly take back what it once owned. -KEP
