Photo Essay: Beauty in co-existence

The intersectionality and co-existence of life around San Domenico


Whether it be through social media or in our own personal circles, every day, regardless of who we are, we experience the consequences of a society that refuses to acknowledge and accept the intersectionality of one’s identity and come to terms with peaceful co-existence. Therefore, this photo-essay represents different forms of life coming together around us. In addition, this essay also exemplifies the beauty in human coexistence with nature.

In general, nature is one of my most important classrooms. I take notes of the way different forms of life interact in nature: their codependency, their care and kindness for each other, their way of letting other species in and I learn some of my most valuable life lessons from them.  We need the environment around us to live. Our basic necessities are derived from it. However, peace and empathy towards each other as humans is just as vital for a positive lifestyle. So, why can’t we practice the same co-existence with each other that we do with the hills and water bodies in our neighborhoods?
