An unexpected blow


Trees are probably the living beings that do the most for the environment. They protect the soil, absorb CO2, produce oxygen, pollen, fruit, shelter… Providing all these benefits to the rest of the planet’s inhabitants, I wonder… could trees be the most empathetic living beings on the planet?

Yet humans destroy millions of trees every year, deteriorating our Earth.

Wood is needed, but let’s stop the indiscriminate felling of trees and reforest the world with as much diversity as possible.

Media selection (paper finish)

Canson Infinity BARYTA PHOTOGRAPHIQUE 310 gsm  

This is a museum-quality paper, ultra-smooth, with a satin look, deep blacks and pure colors. Whenever there are reflections in an image, I like to use this paper, as the slight reflection of this media makes the image more realistic. It has more contrast than matte papers and it suits this strong image perfectly well.
