"Elegy in Ashes" delves into the haunting aftermath left by recent wildfires in Northern California, prompting viewers to reflect on the harsh realities of our climate crisis. By capturing the charred remains of vegetation and human habitation amidst the desolate, monochromatic landscape, the series conveys a vision of a world devastated by these catastrophic events. My hope is that these images will evoke a profound sense of grief and contemplation in the viewer and serve as a call to action to prevent the looming existential crisis that threatens us all.
