“Biophilia, which in Greek literally means love for life, refers to the primal necessity of humans to feel connected to nature. We have always tried to integrate nature-inspired elements in our immediate environment. However, if you look in the stores today, it seems to be a hype.

However, if you look in the stores today, it seems to be a hype. That’s what I thought, at least until I read a scientific study showing that nature or natural elements in our environment contribute to our mental and physical well-being. In fact, one tree, one plant or even a picture of a tree is enough to help us become more productive, more creative and it can even lower our blood pressure.

So, we become happier and healthier from natural elements in our surroundings, even if they are artificial. That sounds very good, of course, but I believe there’s also a risk: won’t we get further and further away from nature if we can meet our primal need with a photo print of a waterfall or a cactus-shaped lamp?

In short, my photo bookBiophilia is about our distorted relationship with nature.”
