I have lived my whole life close to the ocean, which brings me immense joy. I use photography, which is a powerful tool to show both the physical and psychological impacts of global warming, as currently, one in seven people in New Zealand lives in flood-prone areas. By using myself as the protagonist in some of my images, I hope to illustrate how the effects are impacting New Zealanders daily lives, also highlighting how nature and mankind are all interconnected. Through this series, I hope the viewer takes a moment to reflect on the potential devastating effects on displaced, vulnerable communities and the accompanying mental health issues. As the sea encroaches on our habitat, the structures of mankind begin to distort to become unclear, and my images point to a time when there will be no safe dwelling place. My choice to shoot through my car windscreen in the rain adds to the distortion and sense of impending doom.
