Vanessa Kappler

I am a visual researcher working with sustainability and the power arrangements between humans, nature and animals. My work deals with scientific research as well as our emotional response to our environment. In that, I combine classic documentary photography, graphic design, archival and stock material as well as text.

Within my topics I focus on details of our behaviour towards our environment, while I deal with bigger questions such as: How do we interact with other species? How come we differentiate so strongly between species? Why do we think we have the right to modify our environment to our liking?

In order to be empathic and respectful towards our environment and others, we should reflect on our behaviour and try to expand our horizon every day.

Based in the Hague, The Netherlands.
