How Soon Is Now?
Physical consequences aren’t the only danger of Climate Change.
Eco-Anxiety can be defined as the feeling of helplessness that humans feel in the face of the climate crisis and the inability to feel like we are making a difference in stopping it, no matter how much we want to. We find ourselves submerged on a confusing, irresponsible, high consumption lifestyle and feel that important actions such as using less plastic, less water or less heat, etc. are ineffective and therefore demoralizing, resulting in frustration, conflict-avoidance and even higher pollution on our part. But it’s vital we realize the power of our actions and High Efficacy Climate Change messages (or how to stay sane in the face of climate change).
This image is part of a satirical photo series that intend to portray how clueless human beings feel sometimes when trying to “protect” our world and it’s a call for public messages to focus on helping people understand that they can, and how they can make a personal difference.
Author: I'm a 29 y.o. photographer from Madrid, Spain residing in Los Angeles for the last 8 years.
For the past 6 years, I've specialized in Fashion, Portrait and Travel photography for commercial, editorial and private commissions, and I am currently investing most of my personal time in developing a series of Conceptual/Fine Art photography projects. My commercial/editorial work has been featured in multiple independent and mainstream publications such as Harper's Bazaar and L'Officiel Mexico and I work closely with brands, directing and photographing their projects and campaigns.
I assisted to Art School in Madrid, where I was fascinated by working with live models and making use of all the elements of art. Parallel to my other studies and interests, I continued creating works of art and showing them in various spaces in Southern California. Early in my career, I transferred my interests from Fine Art towards my current career in photography.
At this moment, my work strives to encourage others to look closer at the intricate Planet Earth-Humans interaction, and to challenge modern perceptions about communion and contact with others and the world around us. I'm intrigued by human form, feelings and expression, and how it relates to a certain issue/space/moment in time. I think of my work as an invitation into a space of analogy and reflection. I have a preferred aesthetic concept but I like to keep as many expressive options open as possible.
