This collection of photos is inspired by the earth. When you listen to her, she speaks.

"Our roots are in the dark: the earth is our country. Why did we look up for blessing - instead of around, and down? What hope we have lies there. Not in the sky of orbiting spy-eyes and weaponry, but in the earth we have looked down upon. Not from above, but from below. Not in the light that blinds, but in the dark that nourishes, where human beings grow human souls."

Ursula Le Guin
