Throughout history, particularly since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, mankind has been less than kind to our cohabitants on the planet. We build, produce and consume with little or no regard to the impact it has on the environment. As we force other species to deal with compromised, damaged or destroyed ecosystems - nature adapts and evolves in order to survive. This series depicts scenes resulting from our tragic indifference. They are rendered in a beautiful and natural way, highlighting the idea that we find this acceptable. We are numb to the damage - and so, the unnatural becomes natural to us. This may be the saddest commentary of all.
