Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

From the devastated Great Barrier Reef in Australia, to the concrete seawalls that cover 60 percent of mainland China’s coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama Desert, the crew travels to six continents and twenty different countries to capture stunning images chronicling the catastrophic path travelled by our species over the last century.

Some places have a bit of magic to them for a variety of reasons. In the case of the Tri-Town Ski Village, it’s the volunteers. Without such a dedicated group it might cease to exist, and deny future generations an opportunity to experience such a wonderful facility.
