Amidst the eerie yellow skies that enveloped the San Francisco Bay Area on September 9th, my lens captured the haunting beauty born from the raging wildfires that swept across much of the American West. These images, a visual testament to the unfolding environmental crisis, speak volumes of the tumultuous year that has been 2020.
As we grapple with the collective challenges of this turbulent time, I refuse to attribute our trials to mere chance or bad luck. Instead, I confront the harsh reality that the hardships we face are the result of a series of foreseeable events, exacerbated by the choices and inactions of society.
2020 stands as a stark reminder of our collective responsibility to address pressing issues and enact meaningful change. Let us not dwell in disillusionment but rather rise to the occasion, confronting these challenges with resolve and determination. Only through decisive action can we pave the way for a brighter, more resilient future for all.
