At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.



Tom Hegen

The photographer Tom Hegen deals in his works with human interventions in natural habitats. His photographs document the human beings’ strong impact on our environment and show how we have altered our landscape through our actions. The photo book with many impressive aerial photos invites viewers to discover their environment from a new perspective, to comprehend the dimensions of human interventions on our earth’s surface, and, ultimately, to assume responsibility.
