It seems to me that photographers whose muse is the natural world have a tough time talking about the natural world and the problems facing it. Are landscapes and the natural world just opportunities to take pretty pictures? Or is there more to the natural world than that.
Apparently, talking about the human impact gets us into trouble. Why? Or is that the same with all photography. Are people who are photographing the social condition just using it for cool pictures? Does anyone really care about what they photograph? Is photography its own end?
I am really interested on how folks think about this in reference to their own work.
