Environmental Statement

Downtown Seattle Dock

The environmental impact of human activity is argued, measured and documented, yet its effects are also plainly revealed in everyday imagery. This photograph of a dock in downtown Seattle is interesting in that the elements in the uppermost portion of the photograph – a metal ladder and pier pilings – are easily recognizable.  At the bottom of the image however, these elements have become unrecognizable.

The photograph becomes a visual metaphor for at least one aspect of the relationship of humans with the planet.
