The Human Planet: Earth at the Dawn of the Anthropocene is a dynamic aerial exploration of our changing planet from a photographer, George Steinmetz, who has circled the globe to report on such urgent issues as climate change, the ever-expanding human footprint and sustainable agriculture.
While one can quibble with this being the dawn of the Anthropocene (e.g. the current period in which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment) given humans have existed for 5+ million years and the Industrial Revolution kicked off in the late 1700s, George is at home on every continent, documenting both untrammeled nature and the human project that relentlessly redesigns the planet in its quest to build shelter, grow food, generate energy and create beauty through art and architecture. In his images, accompanied by authoritative text from renowned science writer, Andrew Revkin, we are encountering the dramatic and perplexing new face of our ancient home and possibly wondering what does this mean for the human race.
