The Anthropocene: the age in which human activity causes the greatest change to the earth’s landscape. Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, is a monumental visual report on our changing ecosystem. In stunning yet shocking images we see vast coal mines in Germany, shocking effects of deforestation in Canada, and bright green lithium lakes in the Andes - all materials that are used daily for our built environment. While our machines leave their mark, the earth is slowly turning into a place we no longer recognize. These magnificent images show the hideous beauty of our influence on the earth. An urgent call to arms.
