Concept thumbnail 1: The clouds at the top of the page are raining water showing a natural element in the image. Mid-way down the tree in the centre, the water blends and transforms into oil, leaving the ‘oil’ to drip down the tree and into the palm of the hand. This shows the cycle of how nature is being tainted by the oil pollution and how it ends up affecting the people.
Concept thumbnail 2: The hand at the top of the image is picking up the tree to symbolise those who are causing the oil pollution and destroying the environment in the Western Amazon. Underneath the tree there is oil to replace it. There is a person, possibly a native, who is in dismay at what is happening to their environment. This will be a very dull image in reflection of what the person is feeling. The larger hand in the image also helps identify which people have the power over the environment.
Concept thumbnail 3: There are those in the background ‘leaking’ the oil into the waters that, in the foreground, we can see native people use as drinking water. It will be clear water where the native is drinking however the oil will be coming closer as an indication of the big effect it can have on the people.
Concept thumbnail 4: The hour-glass symbolises that time is running out to save the environment. The tree at the top of the hour-glass represents nature and it is in fresh soil. The soil is gradually falling through and as it does it turns into oil. As the oil drips down, there is someone at the base, a native of the environment, that ends up drinking this oil showing the pollution’s effects. The top half of the image will be bright and natural, whereas the bottom half will be dull and gloomy.
Concept thumbnail 5: This image will be a contrast between the left environment and the right. On the left, there is vibrant greenery in the Western Amazon with a native person who is visibly happy. The part in the middle will be water then it will merge with the right, which will be oil. On the right, there will be a large hand taking away/destroying ‘nature’ and emphasising that they are the bigger power here. This side of the image will be much darker than the other.
