There, each photo captures “people and nature”, not only the poetic beauty to relax the viewer’s soul but also the empathy from the interrelationship, the interdependence of things, and the heart of the audience. heaven and earth… The author hopes to contribute a voice, raise awareness and consciousness of the community, together to protect nature and the living environment of all species before it is too late. Looking at pictures, we want to suffer, be happy or stick a label on it is our right. But, we are what we think we are and beauty is only reflected in a beautiful soul. That’s really what the author wants to convey to the audience.
