Now, over the course of a new year, I’m sending a one postcard a week from October 2018-October 2019 to every BC Member of Parliment, plus Justin Trudeau because I don't want him to feel left out.
The second is to empower the public. We cannot act with a conviction on an issue unless we believe there is backing behind it. Climate change isn't the friendliest of topics and is not readily discussed among friends and family, as a result it ends up on the back burner of social justice while our planet is burning up. By taking all these photos I hope to demonstrate that there is an undercurrent of dissatisfaction at the status quo and support for us all to rise up and change it.
Both goals depend on making one thing loud and clear:
I spent a year approaching people in public, taking their photos and asking why they care about the issue. I have collected over 350 images.
There are two main aims to this project:
The first is for the photos and quotes included on the back of the postcards to delight and drive politicians to create rapid, meaningful change.
