Hi I'm Dave Whited
In the 1980s, Florian Pavard, a French economist introduced a concept he called Intergenerational Discounting. Essentially his idea was that “people are more motivated by immediate private rewards than by long-term, collective future benefits.” In other words, we tend to underestimate our impact on future generations.
Unfortunately, We are not alone. We share those impacts with all creatures large and small. Climate change, habitat loss, and species extinction are only a few results of intergenerational discounting.
As a landscape architect, I've worked hard for decades to create sustainable designs that preserve and protect the world's sensitive ecosystems.
As an artist and photographer, I am driven to explore our world and capture images of our world, for future generations.
I hope you enjoy what you see here.
