Happy #earthday! today we’re celebrating with liron gertsman (@liron_gertsman_photography
), an 18-year-old nature photographer who hopes his photos help educate people about the environment. 📸 🏔
“i hope that people see my photos and come away with a new sense of love, respect and desire to protect the incredible natural world,” says liron, who studies at the university of british columbia. in 2018, his photos of the amazon rainforest in ecuador earned him praise at the audubon photography awards and london’s natural history museum’s wildlife photographer of the year competition. beyond the awards, the experience helped him realize the power of the lens. “those photos were seen by people in museums around the world which taught me the power of photography as a tool for education and conservation,” he says.
today on our story, liron takes us on a photo hike.
