Damaged Earth: a new Gallery by Terra Quantum
In 2019, according to the not-for-profit organization Global Footprint Network, humanity has exhausted the yearly budget of Nature on July, the 29th. This date is called the Earth Overshoot Day. Therefore, after this day, we draw down the natural resources and accumulate carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Alternatively speaking, it means that our current consumption is equivalent to 1,7 Earth planets. Terra Quantum opens a new photographic gallery dedicated to this issue. Keeping our photographic excellence requirement, we will display the work of some photographers who act as the witnesses of Earth destruction and its possible future consequences. May their images have a salutary effect on all of us. read more.
