Surreal Images Show The Impending Storm That Is Climate Change (VIDEO)

Climate change has been described as a storm brewing on the horizon and this new photo series brings that metaphor to life in a way that might just shake a few people awake and into action! Conservation photographer Benjamin Wong, a.k.a. Von Wong, is the mastermind behind the striking series called “Surreal Stormchasing Portraits." While engaged in a dinner conversation with his partner, Anna, Wong expressed the desire to use storm chasing as a platform for making a conservation/cause based statement. Daunted by the logistics, he enlisted the help of fellow photographer and storm chaser, Kelly DeLay. Faced with unbelievably tight time frames for set up and tear down, dangerous conditions and logistic concerns that were the stuff of nightmares, the team soldiered on, traversing 7 states in 10 days in a borrowed ambulance, capturing images that were nothing short of spectacular. Here's what Wong has to say about the process: Wong freely admits that he hasn't always been so environmentally focused. “I think I definitely fit into the demographic of people who just exist in the world and surf through it. You see all these climate change things pop up, but it’s not fun to read about. It makes you feel kinda bad,” he said. But by doing these sorts of projects he says, “I’m speaking to the other ‘me’s’ in the world. It just feels like a positive way to contribute back. I like the idea that I can make a small difference.” Anything that gets people to stop and think, to prioritize protecting the planet more than they do already, has to be better than doing nothing. Here are a few examples that really hit home: nc9scixj6bqmko3plmc3 (1) mz6khqyo4cyz6sas2ek3 (2) b7qvk4tcsfslghjqqe54 (1) [bctt tweet="Surreal Images Show The Impending Storm That Is Climate Change (VIDEO)"] zopu6wolwm0html57nud peow53pcrkttbeodrs0j (1) Are you impacted by these photos?
