100.000.000 years - Ed Back
What traces will modern human civilization leave to be found in millions of years’ time? This book visually explores the notion of the Anthropocene through the conceptualisation of a fossil legacy shaped by mass consumption and waste. The images are composed of photograms, a cameraless photography technique that involves placing the subject directly onto the photosensitive paper and exposing it to light. This technique captures the shadows of the object leaving an imprint stripped of familiar contexts. Reframing these objects as something unfamiliar that deserves our time and attention reflects the collective impact that they are having on the planet.
