Diana Kingsley Gets to the Root of the Human Relationship to Nature

— August 28, 2011 — Fashion
I am in awe at the photographs of Diana Kingsley, which are both powerful and subtle at the same time. The impactful message requires a deep look, but will not be lost on the attentive to eye. Capturing the subtle parts of human activities that are changing the face of the natural world, her photos make a strong statement about the scrutinized relationship between human beings and the natural world.

The striking photos of nature's gorgeous details, from flower petals to fruit trees and mushrooms, are polluted by human objects like cigarettes, golf balls and balloons. Without changing much about the original scenery, the human objects follow a "Where's Waldo" pattern, blending in with their surrounds and requiring more than a second look to take notice of. While the focus for environmentalists is on the major ways humans have impacted the natural world, such as driving and excessive waste, Kingsley's artistic perspective will make you think twice about the little things whose cumulative impact is undeniable.

Implications - Artists often use their work as a platform for conveying strong social messages that are easily overlooked in a sea of news reports and statistics. Consumers identify with this medium on a more personal level, and the use of loaded images in place of words is an effective means of provoking conscious thought and remaining entertaining.
