“Witness” is a collection of new constructed photographic prints by Debra Howell. The imagery takes place in a period some time later than those populating her 2016 series, “Adaptations,” in which she had explored the potential of human adaptation to our changing world, one shadowed by the fear of climate change and its effects on our lives, our homes, our planet, and our futures. “Witness” jumps forward into a time in which the destruction is upon us. Just as “Mother Nature” has been considered a healing force since the beginning of time, “Witness” explores the idea that trees will play the role of earth’s salvation in a post-human world.
