Concrete Jungle // A photography album

April 19, 2017 0
This photography album is something I never thought I would do. I usually like shooting nature, animals. etc. I hate when I can see a telephone pole in a perfect view or anything human-made for that matter. In a nutshell, I love when I can shoot anything without any unnatural elements. However, in this album, I wanted to try something different and push myself out of my comfort zone. The following is a compilation of pictures that do in fact contain man-made structures.


Concrete Jungle

I wanted to give this album a story line or some kind of order if that makes sense. As you scroll down, you will see the progression of this hypothetical 'Concrete Jungle'. First, the territory is established (the first picture) and then gradually the destruction advances to bridges and buildings. 
It's sad to think that this album is just a dramatized depiction of the actual world when in fact this is almost as true as the reality. Construction and human activities have already taken so much from wildlife and still are. Habitats are being destroyed every day and species are being lost forever at a faster rate than ever. The pictures below have been edited or have had some kind of effect used on them so as to make them fit in the theme, however, if destruction of nature continues to happen faster and faster every day, then it won't be long till we won't be required to apply effects for pictures to look like the ones below.
This self-designed project was a good change for me and I really hope you see the story the way I see it and that my pictures are able to narrate the story to you.
