It is estimate that by 2050 the number of people in the world will have reached nine billion.
As the size of population and life-standards increase, so does its energy consumption.

Human Domination on Earth
Research 2019-2020


.
The research contains over 20 images available which had previously been studied and made in the last years in different locations.
This first serie of this research represents scientific and technological progress revolutions, from a fossil energy era to a new sustainable energy era.
The second serie is linked to natural elements on the planet Earth which are currently threaten by human’s actions.  

It is estimate that by 2050 the number of people in the world will have reached nine billion. As the size of population and life-standards increase, so does its energy consumption. The era of carbon-intensive energy derived from fossil fuels is coming to an end and being transformed to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future in order to quickly transition to a low carbon dioxide reduction.
Some images in this research portrays the world's first large-scale floating solar installation in the mountains, producing 50% more energy than similar lowland projects. Other images reveal the improper handling of 500 liters of flocculating chemical products in the river and the largest oil refinery in Portugal, located on the coast seaside.

How is our state of mind relating with the quickly current environment transformation? Our planet is changing faster than we can perceive and this research portrays this symbolic moment of transition we are living.
It is focusing on visual content of the landscapes which are never constant but change over time with population growth, the rise of the cities to the current post-modern landscapes.
