Tips from an edit­ing mas­ter.

Im­age-edit­ing ex­pert Antti Karp­pinen shares his sur­real take on the en­vi­ron­ment

This im­age is called ‘Last clean air on earth’ and is the first of a se­ries of im­ages that have been brew­ing in my head for a while now. This idea sparked when I saw a statue made by an amaz­ing artist called Will Fer­reira. See­ing this statue of an apoc­a­lyp­tic char­ac­ter suck­ing the air out of the last tree on earth, I could almost hear it call­ing me to do my own ver­sion of it. The vi­sion in my head was of a posh, rich, up­per-class woman wear­ing a dec­o­rated nasal can­nula con­nected to a glass orb she is hold­ing. In­side that orb would be some sort of a plant, dy­ing slowly but still gen­er­at­ing some air to breath. I wanted the woman to look like she is al­ready sick be­cause of the pol­lu­tion and from the back­ground you could see that the end of the planet is near.
