THEMOIRè, in collaboration with Perimetro, presents: YOUR ROOTS
The current climate emergency, resulting in deforestation and global warming, requires us to take action to protect the ecosystem and allow the earth to breathe new life. To commemorate World Earth Day, THEMOIRè and Perimetro present YOUR ROOTS, a photography project that celebrates the tree as an emblem of nature: the tree that has roots in the deep layers of the earth growing upwards towards the sky, creating clean air and possibilities for the future.
Through a contest that took place from March 9th through April 3rd involving Perimetro’s community of photographers, a collection of photographs was created developing a visual story that describes the emotional connection binding each artist to a tree. Each selected photographer will receive a gift of five trees to help finalize a reforestation project in Nepal in partnership with TreeNation, for a total of 120 trees planted and 96,000 kg of CO2 offset. To date, THEMOIRè has planted nearly 30,000 trees in 12 countries through which more than 1,000 tons of CO2 have been absorbed.
