As I began thinking where to start, what to focus on, how to frame, and when to
click, mists of confusion surrounded my thoughts. The globe is warming, the
consequences of which will inevitably surface on the land on which I live, and I
began searching for reasons. From within the boundaries of my comfort zone, I
pointed my lens toward the ‘other’, to find those responsible for breaking the
balance and harmony of nature which led to the changing climate. Is it
because of the industries? Or the insane pace of so-called development? Wars?
The plague of greed, melting ice, deforestation? Or is it ‘I’ who contributes to
the destruction of my own existence? Hence, ‘I’ turned ‘My’ camera towards
Myself, to shed light on the hidden icon that we carry secretly within each of us:
‘I’ who is archetypal and metaphoric; ‘I’ who wants to have the freedom to
consume, to have power and wealth, to be one with my own indulgence; ‘I’
who wants to separate self from nature so as to be distinctive and superior, only
to transform everything into mine, and mine alone.
