YOU HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOUR OBJECT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT DESTROY IT WITH YOUR SUBJECTIVITY, AND YET REMAIN INVOLVED AT THE SAME TIME

Being environment oriented means wide scale of different things. Nature comes first in mind with the term and is important for sure. I must say that as a photographer I'm not very much of wild-life shooter going after pics of rare birds - there a many photographers more merited in that genre.

Larger scale issue that is getting huge importance is climate change. This is global question that affects our life everywhere - and our ways of living affect climate everywhere. Photographically it's about visualizing ways of lives, questioning which are ways we should live to have a good world to live in. World which can with a clear conscience be given forward for next generations.

Environment means also bigger and smaller everyday things. Architecture, urban planning, design - and how these are layered. This is environment that we make ourself and this component affects our life maybe even more straightforward ways than the previous ones.
