19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The X-Files. Ecological Disaster in an Industrial Wonderland

This project is designed to draw attention to the problems of the human influence on the environment, such as changing the genome of living organisms in order to obtain certain benefits for humanity, the effect of radiation on the growth of animals and plants, climate change issues and environmental pollution. I used 1:87 scale models to recreate the above situations. I'd like to demonstrate what could happen to our Earth in the future, and what kind of legacy we could leave to our descendants.
