Photos Show What Humans Have Done To The Planet

They created over 50 images capturing the impact of humans on the Earth, like a sprawling, 30-acre garbage dump in Kenya, large swaths of deforestation in Borneo and waterways damaged by oil siphoning in Nigeria.

Their expansive, multidisciplinary body of work is called The Anthropocene Project.

The project, which includes photography, film, virtual reality and augmented reality, took four years to complete and launched in September 2018. The exhibition is currently on display at the Fondazione MAST Museum in Bologna, Italy. And their film will be shown in the U.S. this fall.


The Earth is sick.

5. I think we have to accept the fact that we are the last generation of humans.

Science has been screaming at the top of their lungs for just about my entire life and there has been no real progress made to halt the destruction of the earth's biosphere. Science now says we only have about 30 years left before the next great extinction, which will include at the very least human civilization, if not the entire human race. Along with most aquatic life, animals and insects as well.

So, as Douglas Adams so famously said, So Long and Thanks For All the Fish.

9. Agreed.

Don't think all of us will be gone in 30yrs but civilization will be in shreds and money won't mean a damn thing. Most of us, including myself will be dead and my 32yo offspring will be in for a gruesome death - he knows and has accepted my many heartfelt, crying apologies. 😭😭

7. I was fortunate to see his show in Minneapolis last year.

His photography is amazing. I can't imagine how he came up with the idea for this but it really gives you an idea of what we're doing to this planet.
