Marred Landscapes

  • Photographer
    Daniel Haeker

With all the talk about caring for our environment and for nature in general already going on for decades, we as humans still can't be bothered to clean up our mess behind us - to the contrary, we still oftentimes just leave it lying or standing around in landscapes that are supposed to be beautiful but instead are marred through our contribution. The images of this series are shot in Norway, India, Australia, Germany, the Galápagos Islands and Argentina.
