Migratory movements have produced “no man’s lands” throughout history, but never more than today, due to worldwide demographic expansion and growing urban sprawl. My photos show some of these residual zones, documenting their past and questioning their future. Although abandoned, these places are still worth a thousand words.


Images of Mars by Curiosity

This image taken by NASA’s Curiosity shows what lies ahead for the rover — its main science target, informally called Mount Sharp. The rover’s shadow can be seen in the foreground, and the dark bands beyond are dunes. Rising up in the distance is the highest peak Mount Sharp at a height of about 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometers), taller than Mt. Whitney in California. The Curiosity team hopes to drive the rover to the mountain to investigate its lower layers, which scientists think hold clues to past environmental change.

This image was captured by the rover’s front left Hazard-Avoidance camera at full resolution shortly after it landed. It has been linearized to remove the distorted appearance that results from its fisheye lens.

This work reminds me of the images of sound which are used to frame this piece of work with the crack of the LCD in the centre.
