For a series of portraits he now affectionally refers to as the “old babies,” California-based photographer Zachary Scott transforms a set of six children into elderly characters, with each youngster flawlessly inhabiting the role of the businessman, the grandma, the churchgoer, and even the old farmer.
Nomadic life has been central to traditional Mongolian culture throughout history. To this day, 35% of Mongolians depend on the vast open land to live. What happens when environmental changes, like desertification, threaten their only means of survival? Korean photographer Daesung Lee took notice of issues facing this culture and sought out to make a bold statement. For his series Futuristic Archeology, he turns the Mongolian landscape and its nomadic people into a living museum diorama. He hopes to call attention to the possible fate of these people who’s lives are threatened by the changing climate.
