Extinction scars.

About the project

Extinction scars is a series of photographs showing the details of plant dieback. In close-up, the leaf structure looks almost like human skin, and its serrated horns are very similar to dinosaur spikes – so you can think that it is not only pictures of a dying plants, but also of injured people and animals. The Extinction scars series is supposed to stop the viewer for a moment and let them reflect on our ephemeral life and the consequences of climate change. It supposed to show how each small change in nature can affect entire ecosystems.

The photoshoot was taken with Canon EOS 700D digital camera in a home studio and show parasite-gnawed leaves from my garden.
