16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Enraciné iii

Enraciné iii, explores the humanistic approach to environmental sustainability through consciousness rooted in the industrialized world. The urban composition is inverted (symbolizing the roots of industrialized society) and collaged with a mountainous image to reveal the complex transcendent evolution humanity must make towards the level of consciousness that will take whatever action is required to save our planet. As the wise Albert Einstein once said, "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
