Alarming Photo Series Puts a Spotlight on Water Pollution

Markus Aspegren is an internationally awarded photographer based in Kuopio, Finland, whose artistic journey began five years ago, when he turned his hobby into a profession.

At first, Aspegren was interested in landscape photography, but later on, he discovered that he likes taking pictures of people even more. In one of his latest series, he tells an alarming story about water pollution.

“This photo series is a story of nature and people,” the photographer shared on Bored Panda. “The making was at once both burdensome and awesome. Many months these images haunted my dreams and permeated my thoughts for much of my waking hours. This series’ intention is to stir up emotion also in the audience. Bring the mind to the present. To tell a story of our waters.”
