The word “sustainability” refers to how biological systems endure over time by remaining diverse and productive. One of the largest impacts on ecosystems is the destruction of natural resources—be they atmospheric (air pollution/global warming), water related (waste water/conservation), or land specific (carbon footprint/deforestation). This exhibition illustrates several of these concerns through images that address industrialization, deforestation, and vandalism, as well as nature’s diversity, fragility and ephemeral beauty.
