The Greenhouse Series, 50x70 cm

The Dutch have created the most advanced area in the world for controlled environment agriculture and have become world leaders in agricultural innovation. However, there are also consequences this growing method brings with it, like light pollution or growing crops out of season and ship them around the world, so people can eat strawberries year-round. Ordinances have been developed in which up to 98% of the electric lighting must be contained within a greenhouse facility by using blackout screens and curtains along the sides and roofs. According to the United Nations, the world’s population will grow from today’s 7.5 billion people to 10 billion in 2050. And as natural resources like farmland and water become scarce, feeding the world will become an even greater challenge. Researchers in the Netherlands are experimenting with one way to feed more people with using less land, by growing crops indoors. At inside temperatures above 20 degrees, constant humidity of around 80 percent and the use of LED lighting to permit precisely cultivation, in order to produce year-round. The indoor gardens provide growing conditions for plants like tomatoes, peppers or strawberries around the clock and in every kind of weather, which doubles the average yield of an outdoor farm. The Netherlands is the globe’s number two exporter of food as measured by value, second only to the United States, which has 270 times its landmass.

Collection Intro

The Dutch have created the most advanced area in the world for controlled environment agriculture and have become world leaders in agricultural innovation. However, there are also consequences this growing method brings with it, like light pollution or growing crops out of season and ship them around the world, so people can eat strawberries year-round.

According to the United Nations, the world’s population will grow from today’s 7.5 billion people to 10 billion in 2050. And as natural resources like farmland and water become scarce, feeding the world will become an even greater challenge.

Human Altered Landscapes

We hardly pay attention to how much we have changed our planet in order to meet our needs. A forest, for instance, can look like ordinary nature from the ground. But by changing the point of view, you can actually see that this forest is based on a grid – built by man.

Lockdown

During the lockdown time in March, April and May, I took photographs of the largest German Airports and their resting runways. It was a historic moment and a unique opportunity to get these images. The book published in a high-quality clothbound hardcover book by renowned German publisher Hatje Cantz.

Print

Printed on beautiful 170g/m² photo paper with an essay by world renowned philosopher and author Alain de Botton about a post-travel world. The book comes in a very nice and hight-quality clothbound hardcover.

Human Altered Landscapes

"In recent centuries humans have become one of the most important factors influencing the biological, geological and atmospheric processes on Earth. Meanwhile, we have left our marks on more than two-thirds of the Earth's surface. Scientists now suggest that we should live in a new human era, called Anthropocene."

Human Altered Landscapes

The book HABITAT explores the relationship between man and nature by aerial photography. It raises the question of when a man’s influence on Earth began and how our civilization has developed since that. Five chapters and 90 photographs show on over 180 pages traces of human presence on Earth.
