Dear Nature – John Newling
In 2018 artist John Newling spent 81 consecutive days writing letters to Nature. The letters echo the sentiment of a series of letters to a loved one but with a voice of humanity attempting to come to terms with its relationship to nature.
The letters take you on a journey through the history of agriculture, economics, religion and capitalism to the present day. Newling describes the values that have underpinned human endeavour and shaped our world.
But most importantly, Dear Nature describes that which all humans with a conscience, deep down, must feel right now about nature.
This book offers a new state of mind for the future, rooted in balance and respect.
