Anthropocene by David Ellingsen

While yet at the threshold of formal geological designation, we have now effectively transitioned from the relative calm of the Holocene into the new Anthropocene epoch.

While yet at the threshold of formal geological designation, we have now effectively transitioned from the relative calm of the Holocene into the new Anthropocene epoch, due exclusively to the effects of our single species having fundamentally changed the natural systems of the entire planet. 

Within this context, Ellingsen’s Anthropocene photographs are intended to speak to the physical and mystical connections between the natural world and humans.

These connections are reflected strongly within the pre-industrial cultural knowledge forged from countless generations observing the intricate relationships between land, ocean, flora, fauna and atmosphere – knowledge ensuring survival within ones surroundings. While centuries of colonialism, war and globalization have extinguished much of this ancient wisdom, re-learning and integrating it back into our modern culture offers one path though the environmental challenges now upon us. These photographs represent a warning, but also a rendering of hope, speaking to this integration – of ancient wisdom and modern civilization, of man and nature – as an antidote to humanity’s subjugation, domination and consumption of the living planet.
