Green Urbex, the world without us - Sylvain Tesson & Romain Veillon
What would the earth look like if man suddenly disappeared?
Romain Veillon travels the world to photograph abandoned places. It shows and details how they degrade and rot, gradually returning to nature. These images fascinate like the great paintings of ruins of the 18th century because they reflect our own finiteness and the fragility of our civilizations, thus recalling the need for a harmonious life with our habitat, which will not be able to resist for long the ecological pressure that the Man puts her through.
A well-documented text accompanies the three main parts of the book:
1. In the beginning, abandonment /
2. Rotting sets in /
3. Nature takes over
thus describing in a very precise way, on the basis of the most recent studies, what would become of the world... "without us".
"Long live the eternal return!" Long live the Green Urbex!
There is life after death: dandelions. »
