Entry Description

I couldn’t believe my eyes when, during a visit to the gulf coast in Mississippi in December 2015, I walked up on this satirical commentary on the impact of human beings on the environment. It was like nature herself was making a joke about the absurd state of affairs between our climate, environmental exploitation and man-made waste.
