19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

This image is part of an on-going project and considers the juxtaposition between globalisation, developmental progress and climate change, respectively. Living very close to the Lewes Road in Brighton I have become increasingly aware of the urbanisation of its thoroughfare with the number of new high rise buildings that now have started to fill its space. We often talk of seeing beautiful skies as the sun sets and the moon reaches its full shape but with the continued impact of global warming this image is a surreal examination of the effect the construction industry is having on our ecosystem and contrasts it with the world's progressive desire to land tourists on the moon from 2024 onwards. The moon is crucial to our environment having the largest influence on the earth's tides.
