The Human Planet: Earth at the Dawn of the Anthropocene is a visual chronicle of how humans have come to be the dominant force shaping our planet, as seen through George’s thirty years of aerial photography across all seven continents. The visual narrative evolves through three chapters, exploring climate and the natural world, examining how humans have harvested the biosphere, and showcasing the footprint that humanity is leaving on the planet in its quest to build shelter, grow food, generate energy, and create beauty through art and architecture.
