Our aim was to shed light on the fragile and often problematic relationship between humankind and our planet. In doing so, wanted to reveal all there is to fight for and the importance in protecting Mother Earth.

BDG brings together the creatives, scientists and entrepreneurs who are creating solutions to the problems the planet faces. Creativity is equally essential to science as it is to art. Artists and scientists have an appreciation for the beauty of the world and a shared interest in creating change.
By highlighting the beauty of the ocean we aim to educate both green and non-green audiences and to show people that this is not just an environmental issue, but a global one. BDG are excited to be collaborating with Faces In Focus in an exhibition that aims to highlight the importance of the ocean and earth working in harmony.
The oceans can easily exist without humans. If we became extinct, they wouldn’t even notice we’re gone. We, however, cannot exist without the ocean. They are a life support system, our lungs, climate regulator and a crucial part to our existence.
