About Where Water Once Was – words by Sara Meinz:
“Where Water Once Was” is a series of pictures taken unintentionally during the past years while my concern about the climate crisis arose. While walking around my surroundings, I started wondering how the landscape I was witnessing would evolve due to the rising temperatures and the consequences we will face, such as floods and droughts. Despite originating from a negative mindset and feeling defeated about the situation, the series aims to allure some hope for the future due to nature’s ability for resilience, as if offering a half-empty and half-full glass view.
