As previously mentioned I want to merge or contrast nature at it’s best, green and full of life, with the dullness of pollution. I still want to continue with this idea but have been thinking I may want to explore it a slightly different way. I want to try and incorporate the oil more into my image as it is the main focus of my article.
Through the composition of:
-A black oil substance to represent the cause of the pollution mentioned in the article
-A tree to represent the nature aspect of the article
-One or Two people to represent those being impacted by the pollution
I am intending to create an image that visually communicates the suffering being experienced by the Western Amazon, both its people and its wildlife. I plan on overlapping the oil over the top part of the tree making it seem like it was ‘raining’ oil, or having water/rain come down onto the tree then it turning into oil. This is to symbolise the oil being ‘leaked’ into the Amazon and affecting the nature in the area. I am also interested in incorporating a human figure (or two) to communicate the native people’s involvement and how they are also affected by the pollution. Overall, I do want a dark tone to the image however I will still use a contrasting brightness in the appropriate parts of the image. I will use image manipulation techniques that have been taught in class and try to also use the best aspects of what I have researched to create a photo-realism image that represents this article.
