I believe photography can be an instrument for positive change in the world. With that in mind, I submitted this image to National Geographic for their Planet or Plastic photo competition, part of Natgeo’s multiyear effort to raise awareness about the global plastic waste crisis.
I’m grateful that it was one of only 25 photographs selected from over 13,000 submissions for the Planet or Plastic exhibition at Photofest, an international photography festival held in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We decided to attend and had a great time exploring the city, meeting NatGeo editors, staff and photographers. In keeping with the Planet or Plastic theme, the entire exhibition was displayed on cardboard kiosks that will be recycled. Amazing!!
