In Remembrance

 

As the catastrophic fire events increased in frequency across Australia, I began this series as a memorial to the hardworking firefighters, the residents who lost their homes or towns and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is also a memorial for the countless animal lives and habitats lost pushing many to the edge of extinction. Remembering isn’t enough, climate change is causing an increase in the extreme weather resulting in these events. With collective action, there is still time to make a difference, by insisting that our government reduce emissions in line with global targets to reduce future risk. In Remembrance is both a tribute and warning.
