What is meant to be emphasized in photography studies is not a retrospective analysis or analysis, but a prediction of the future with today's photography. It was aimed to get attention by realistically reproducing the problems by applying digital manipulation technique in the photographs. Exaggeration by reproducing it in digital environment is preferred to strengthen the narrative and the message. With the anthropocene discourse, it aims to show the spheres of human influence in a striking way.
