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.
