Images of extinction

This collection images explores the patterns created by extinction and its drivers (habitat destruction, climate change, human population expansion, direct killing) and artistic depictions of these phenomena. I've started with abstract patterns captured by GIS mapping, which provide an interesting way of visualising absence, destruction and disappearance.

Deforestation, Bolivia.  Left: June 17, 1975. Middle: July 10, 1992. Right: August 1, 2000. This area lies east of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, in an area of tropical dry forest. Since the mid-1980s, the resettlement of people from the Altiplano (the Andean high plains) and a large agricultural development effort (the Tierras Baja project) have led to deforestation in this area.

Deforestation, Bolivia.  Near Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. Left: August 4, 1986. Right: August 11, 2001. Most of the tropical dry forest visible in the 1986 image (dark red) has been replaced in the 2001 image by resettlement of people from the Altiplano (the Andean high plains) and by soybean production. The radial patterns are part of the San Javier resettlement plan. At the center of each unit is a small community that includes a church, bar/cafe, school and soccer field. The…
