An Inconvenient Truth
Finnish artist Ilkka Halso presented his Museum of Nature series at MOCCA (Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art) as part of Contact Photography Festival in Toronto. In his photographs he encloses nature (a lake, a waterfall, and a forest) with man-made structures. He is commenting on environmental damage. Nature is getting depleted to the point where we will one day get to only enjoy it as a rare performance. We will pay to sit around a waterfall to watch what it used to be like.
