Our relationship with nature has historically been one of imbalance and overuse. Nearly every step in human history has unfortunately been accompanied by a leap in environmental degradation. At first, humans were incredibly in-tune with their surroundings. Nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes used to roam the lands, following the ebb and flow of the seasons. These tribes had a measurable impact on the environment, but their influence was relatively manageable due to their population size. With advancements in technology and agriculture though, humans began to find more efficient ways of sustaining themselves. These advancements allowed for more permanent settlements, which led to rapid population growth and a distancing from nature.
This imbalance has potentially caused a lot of immeasurable and irreparable damage, which needs an emergency course correction.
The objective of this challenge is to inform this crucial balance between man and nature. The brief/theme of the challenge to make a picture story using not more than 8 images – along with a concept note.
