The Metabolic Landscape addresses humankind’s search for more powerful sources of energy to sustain its increasingly industrial and urbanising existence.
This project builds upon Gina Glover’s research visits to coalmines in the Arctic and geothermal plants in Iceland.
A metabolic disease refers to energy-sourced medical problems like obesity or diabetes. The planet too is revealing signs of metabolic distress: melting glaciers, rising sea levels, coastal erosion, disrupted weather patterns, forest fires, rapidly diminishing biodiversity.
The Metabolic Landscape is Glover’s new series of photographs to be produced as a book in May 2014. Published by Black Dog Publishing, it is co-authored with Geof and Jessica Rayner
Gina Glover is a photographer based in France and the UK. She co-founded Photofusion Photographic Centre in London. Her work was recently exhibited in the European Landscape Photography exhibition at the Palais des Beaux-arts in Brussels, Belgium.
