Drought, 2021

In the arid desert of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, a sign depicting lush nature as it once existed there reads: “I must remember not to do anything against the law of the Earth”. The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) stated in its 2020 Living Planet Report that 60% of wildlife species have become extinct since 1970 due to the rapid use of natural resources by humans. In my opinion, we have inflicted too much destruction on the planet in the name of technological progress. Wherever you find water and oxygen, you will find traces of human beings endangering the environment for their own interests, without any prospects for the future.
