“I am tired of man and his behaviours. When watched for 20 years from an aerial, although amazing, they become predictable. What would happen if mankind vanished? What would be left behind? What would the predicted end of the Human Era look like? What will happen tomorrow, in a year, in a generation, in a thousand years? I know by now that the whole landscape has been processed and marked with human presence. We feel as if we are the hosts and the owners of the entire world. But just one volcano eruption, hurricane or virus is enough to prove that our omnipotence is an illusion. One tiny error can make all we have worked so hard to achieve disappear.”

The series is published in a book.

 

Kacper Kowalski – ‘Side Effects’

Kacper Kowalski‘s series ‘Side Effects‘ – unusual graphic patterns and geometries that an aerial photography can offer, to create abstract portraits of the environment in searching of an answer what it actually means to humans.

“Colour, texture and mystery. Abstracted detail. This beauty hides the truth about the cost of civilisation and nature’s response to man’s actions. I am interested in what is the line of contact between nature and civilisation. It is full of tension and ever-shifting and it gives a good picture of peoples’ behaviour towards their surroundings, the side effects of our existence.”
