In Denali National Park, the highest mountain in North America towers serenely above the clouds. Denali's majesty inspires within me a mission: to conserve nature and reverse climate change. I pledge to support the National Park System, to visit and photograph more US National Parks, and to encourage others to do the same.
Moving forward on Instagram, my goal will be to create posts focused on nature, yoga, and meditation. Photoshop as my artist's toolset, I aim to keep my pictures authentic, yet highlight the colors and aspects that I remember in my mind's eye. I hope to expose the miraculous on earth, and in the meantime to enjoy the process of creating these images as a form of digital art.
In Denali, I recited Shakespeare's "To Be or Not to Be." I questioned consciousness, wondering if my imagination had manipulated my understanding of reality and allowed me a glimpse into paradise. I felt Denali's voice, a silent rumble of gravity, ask me to help conserve its land, and the ecosystems in which organic life on Earth depends.
