Intermission is a series of images made during the Covid 19 pandemic addressing the protection of the environment and how halting our continual intrusion into nature might revitalize it. Air quality improved as people stayed home and practiced social distancing but it became clear to me that the environment needs a mask from the human race and its use of fossil fuels. Each image exposes the threat pollution poses to our natural world and ultimately to the human population.

Maria Coletsis works with issues concerned with identity and the environment. Since receiving her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, she has exhibited her artwork in galleries internationally. A solo art exhibition and book launch at the De Luca Gallery in Toronto for her recently published photography book, Behind the Whip: Dominatrix. Her photographs were included in the East London Photography Festival and chosen by the curator of the Whitney Museum for the Viridian Gallery in New York. She continues to investigate and photograph elements from nature to explore human nature.
