Every year the concentration of greenhouse gases responsible for global warming continues to grow. If the average global temperature rises to 2°C, it will lead to ice-free Arctic and sea-level rise. The planet is already facing powerful feedbacks, but we have a choice. Future generations do not. This photo is a part of the project presenting a thought provoking marathon of photos, encourages each person to awake and preserve the biosphere. I used flowers that are naturally first ones to pop blossom in my hometown Krasnodar, Russia and I also traveled through the whole south region of Russia to see the floral changing, talk to locals, collect more proper subjects to reflect the idea. Everything is interlinked. From year to year, my once flourishing and feeding the entire Russia, region is dramatically changing. Granary from childhood sank into oblivion and was replaced by fruits of "plastic" produce. There's no longer possible to find dear to our family lilac that fills the room with pleasant memories. I would like to save all the little that is left, this is one call to encourage more.
