Back to Petra Zeiler. Her work deals with serious content like environmental problems and resources management, but one can also feel her commitment to outdoor sports.
She studies at the Emily Carr University in Vancouver/B.C. and when she’s not in courses she lives in Jackson Hole/Wyoming. I really enjoyed exploring some of her work on her website, and I’m looking forward to see more.
