What would the Earth be without our pervasive presence?

There is asymmetry in evolution: we need the biosphere to live; on the other hand, the biosphere has no need for a mammal that proclaimed himself homo sapiens. What would the Earth be without our pervasive presence? Wild, untamed, indifferent to our fates, lush again.

Frans Lanting’s photography provides us with this aesthetic, emotional, and unsettling experience.
