‘Human Earth’ is a series of interconnected stories viewing the relationship between people, nature and the science of our relationship with Earth. There seems to be no place on earth unaltered by people. Does natures truthful raw state still exist? And would we be in this environmental crisis without human impact?

Stephen Hawking predicted that humans only have 1,000 years left on the planet. So when will the world end? Many dates already surpassed. Do humans contribute that massively to climate change? Will we die from overpopulation, robots or nuclear power? Is learning about science more powerful than science itself? All questions unanswered.

In this series of photographs I have tried to present the idea that humans place on earth is so little and that earths forces are (hopefully) much more powerful than we like to believe. It would be nice to have the idea that earth will not be ruined by human activity. If humans do not contribute with positive effect towards the earths health then us ‘little people’ will destroy the wondrous planet we live on.

Wildlife photography is about capturing a split second, when the light and the animal behavior come together to create an emotional image.
