Postcards from the
AnthropoScenic Byway

Anthropocene Epoch
National Geographic describes the Anthropocene Epoch as "an unofficial unit of geologic time, used to describe the most recent period in Earth’s history when human activity started to have a significant impact on the planet’s climate and ecosystems."

Though not yet official, most geologists agree that an intense acceleration in human impact globally began in the 1950s.

This series of photographs relies on a familiar pairing, by some ways of seeing, and a conceptual contrast by others. Each presents in both subtle and dramatic ways, the contrast between nature and the presence of humans.

Flip Flop - from the series: Postcards from the AnthropoScenic Byway

"Now a familiar human story is being played out. It is a story of a people who believed, for a long time, that their actions did not have consequence. It is the story of how that people will cope with the crumbling of their own myth. It is our story.
― Paul Kingsnorth
