Climate change and how this artist sheds light on it’s darkness - Material Magazine
"Climate change is rapidly changing our landscape. We caught up with artist Elena Cremona, who is politicising her work to the tune of environmental damage and the stresses we are putting on our planet. Her images are sensitive without pushing the viewer to feel anything but inquisitive, but hold an eerie sense of foreboding when we address the rapid changes to the beauty of nature, brought about by a lack of understanding, of human greed, and of denial. Her work can be seen as a love of nature and a critique on humanity, but it can also be seen as a love of humanity and a driving desire for us to help ourselves.
Her new exhibition Uncertain States questions the geographical politics we all should be talking about right now. She explored parts of nature untouched by money, untouched by greed and untouched by exploitation.
When and how did you begin your journey with photography?
Art, through any form of creation has always been the truest form of expression, in my eyes. I don’t remember there being a specific time when I started photographing, it just always came natural to me to express myself through my chosen craft. I photograph to pour meaning into who I am, to understand better, to grow, to connect and to admire."
