Commissioned by Apple. “It’s easy to show nature as beautiful and tranquil, because it is. But the planet itself is not static. It’s a living, breathing thing. Getting people to see nature differently, to show them a side of the world they’ve never seen before, that’s a hard thing to do.” #Earth #ShotoniPhone by Tim K. @timkemple Check out Stories to see how Tim captures extreme conditions.

“While walking on a parched dirt road in rural Gabon, I noticed this crushed bottle’s almost melancholy beauty. But it also seemed to symbolize crucial environmental issues we face — from the ubiquity of plastic pollution to the ongoing struggle for clean, safe water for everyone. I hope it elicits empathy. I hope it makes you stop and wonder what if it was you that was more directly affected. I hope it encourages us all to act in ways that make the world better.” #WorldWaterDay #Water #ShotoniPhone by David G. @dguttenfelder
