The upcoming Naturzustand book will bring together my large format photography and high resolution satellite imagery of natural disasters. Because:
Naturzustand (state of nature) is an exploration of nature catastrophes post climate
change: building massive bulwarks civil protection agencies try to tame the newly
feral forces of nature in the west, while in the rest of the world people are left to
their own against the despotic nature of climate change – all there is, is the
assessment once disaster struck.
Working on Naturzustand at Bernina Pass in Switzerland: this road was too steep for Moby Dick, my cherry picker. At least that’s not captain Ahab having hooked me there.]]>
Remember me up in my cherry picker? Voilà – here it is: the new Wired Germany with a story on rare earth metals found in Saxony, with photos by yours truly and a great text by Jacob Vicari.
Save the trees, kill the journalist! The text is available online, too.
