By WM, November 2019

People of the Scorched Earth is a collection of fictional dystopian landscapes shot from a myopic and sometimes mawkish perspective. Inspired by climate devastation, the staged landscapes suggest the resilience of the natural world in the face of fire, flood and mass destruction. The photographs also mimic the psychological attempts to make visual sense out of environmental trauma. WM
