Passport to Creativity Creativity meets conservation for Earth Day
WITH ANDREW LING
I think artists need to use their gifts to show people why climate change is such an important topic. Artists have the potential to make these places even more beautiful.
It's so important to protect and cherish these places. Before you know it, they'll be gone.

I was shocked and humbled by the immeasurablE beauty of the landscape. It was like nothing i'd seen before.
Maasai Mara is a place where wildlife is setting the rules, not people. It’s a partnership—it’s not about tourists coming to look at animals on display, it’s about doing life together, living with these animals, making it work in a way that both community and wildlife can live quietly and undisturbed. It’s coexisting.
This project has changed me. Humbled me. Challenged me. I’ve learned a lot about photography that helps me capture what I see and experience more truthfully, but I also feel like my creative boundaries have been pushed, my focus shifted from my work to the stories themselves.
While venturing through the Maasai Mara, I was inspired by how so many factors exist in such a careful balance. This inspired me to create my Mandala Series. I wanted to reflect how the animals, the environment and the community coexist in a way that supports this continuous cycle.

The most surprising thing in this project was the unbelievable lengths the Islanders go to in an attempt to preserve the Island and keep its status as The Cleanest Place on Earth.
It was almost impossible to really understand the huge job these people are facing and the never-ending nature of it.
It is much easier to encourage people to protect the beautiful things in life. The worry is, if we cannot protect places like Lord Howe, in all of its infinite beauty, then what chance does anywhere else have?
