''A wonderfully simplistic, creative, but effective way of tackling a daily issue. Lizette Schaap photographs in a contemporary manner but adds depth to her images by communicating an effective story. She wants to wake us up from our slumber, help us realise that the speed at which we live isn't healthy for our society by incorporating the before and aftermath.''

- May Putman Cramer (New Dawn)

In our society I get the feeling that we constantly have to run, that we have to live for the future instead of the here and now. This speed of living and the overconsumption that goes with it harms us, other people and moreover, our planet. And this mainly occurs in places that don’t consume on the same scale as we do. My aim is to live in awareness in the present, to deal with the rush and to find more rest in my life. For this reason I maintain the sustainability principle of the 3Ps: an equilibrium between people, planet and profit.
