Ethan Weston is a photographer currently based in Columbia, MO. His work focuses on the human side of environmental issues facing the world today.
Growing up Ethan would always use his mother’s camera to take photos of landscapes or wild animals, and he thought for a long time he wanted to be a nature photographer. But, as he got older, and his anxiety surrounding climate change got worse, Ethan realized he could use his photography to try to tell the story of our changing planet, and the people most affected by the anthropocene.
Climate change and other man-made environmental disasters are an increasing threat to communities across the globe, and through his photography Ethan hopes to help those communities by telling their stories. His work focuses both on the consequences of the man-made disaster but also on the solutions to those disasters.
