Roots of Cause - Arantza Sánchez Reyes, LCI Monterrey, México
Monterrey, Mexico is already known as the most polluted city in Latino America. What can I do with this? I have fled from Mexico City (considered one of the most polluted cities on the planet) to study photography in a smaller and worse space. Today, one of the strongest problems is the destruction of its mountain ranges and characteristic mountains to build buildings and home room. 70% of the water is produced by these and that’s why the air is currently much more polluted. Now I live in an individualized city, where there are few protests against it, but for this same individualization more and more people from their home are rebuilding their own and common space a little by making their own compost, returning to local agriculture, walking, recycle, etc ... They seem small changes, but these changes are the hope of raising awareness of an apathetic city. Little by little an awakening begins on the part of society and this is more inclusive with the environment. This project focuses from the individual himself and in this connection between the mind, the senses that we can lose and the body with the environment and specially the earth itself. "
