Jörn Vanhöfen's pictures tell of the small as well as monumental upheavals in our environment. The melting of glaciers can no longer be stopped – even with artfully constructed layers of insulation. Previously concealed continents emerge, while entire coastlines disappear from the map. And yet, Vanhöfen does not present the future as an apocalyptic vision: what he shows us is that nature will inevitably reclaim its domain in a post-human age.

Optimistic metaphors for the natural cycle of construction and deconstruction were already evident in Vanhöfen's earlier projects, Disaster and Aftermath, in which man-made structures are broken up into smaller parts that are subsequently used to create something new. His often center-driven compositions exude magnitude and grandeur, alluding to the cyclic nature of all things. The photographer consciously leaves space for personal associations and interpretations, evoking the viewer's curiosity. Much remains unexplained – leaving us to fill in the gaps with our own imagination.
