Documenting our wild nature
The love for the nature has always been a big part of my life. To combine my passion for photography with my love for the nature is like a dream come true. I want to make a difference for the nature by helping with the preservation of places with natural silence before it is too late. Through a series of films I will be documenting our wild nature in undisturbed places. I believe that what you love, you also want to protect. I call it – The Silence Project.
Nature have spent billions of years turning a barren planet into a paradise. A paradise we should take good care of.
The disturbing facts
I have seen how our glaciers are getting smaller and smaller, how our jungles are getting destroyed by deforestation, and how our planet’s biodiversity is suffering. Here are some of the disturbing facts about our planet’s health.
- Within this century the sea levels are expected to increase by up to 1 meter (3 feet). If all land ice melted, sea level would rise approximately 70 meters (230 feet).
- We’re losing 75.700 square kilometers (18.7 million acres) of forests annually, equivalent to the size of Ireland or to 27 soccer fields every minute. Scientists estimate up to 13 percent of global carbon emissions come from deforestation.
- Every year 50.000 plant and animal species disappear.
Biodiversity is a term used to describe the enormous variety of life on Earth. But insects are declining dramatically – and it threatens the survival of nature. Global studies made of researchers from two Australian universities and a Chinese university shows …
Noise is an overlooked problem. Too often we accept it and try to live with it. But we have to do something about this problem because it is harming people health. WHO has it ranked as the second biggest problem behind air pollution. The noise leads to stress which causes bad health and even death for some people …
Our true nature
Lack of environmental awareness have made undisturbed places with natural silence one of our most scarce resources.
As human populations and demands for resources increase, our natural habitats are suffering. Loss or damage of natural habitats is not only among the biggest threats to wildlife but also a threat to our own health and quality of life …
The Silence Project
This project was born out of love for the undisturbed places in nature. The goal of the project is to share the wonders of nature with as many people as possible and help us fall back in love with the nature. It is only when we fall in love with something that we truly want to protect it …
Natural silence is essential for a healthy natural environment. It can make a big difference for both wildlife and for us. Just being quiet and listening to the silence of the nature can be a profound experience.
It is often the faintest sounds in nature that’s the must interesting and beautiful. Raindrops falling on leaves, mouses rattling in the forest floor, birds tweeting in the distance …
