Last Days | We live in an era of frightening superlatives. Each morning the headlines blare, “July HOTTEST Month Ever Recorded”, “Climate The GREATEST Existential Threat We Have Faced”, and on and on. The warnings seem to come faster and faster falling on ears that seem to become deafer and deafer.
Last Days documents a small area of land, near Ventura, California , which was ravaged by the largest wildfire in the history of the state. The photographs foreshadow the near future that waits us as we move through the waning years of the Anthropocene. www.joaquinpalting.com
