"The Last Man on Earth" - gallery online for The Guardian

"Depopulation Blues"
 “The Last Man on Earth” made it to The Guardian! They have dedicated a wide gallery to the project in their arts section, allowing me to raise some very personal ideas about depopulation… but also about my creative process as a photographer.
 
Very rewarding to see the work in there, and reach such a wide audience world-wide with a story might seem so local in the beginning.

Have a look! ;)
