Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, created ‘Anthropocene’: a series of dramatic images exposing how we as humans have left a drastic signature on planet Earth. The exhibition - a first in Belgium - displays powerful images taking up a whole room at times, and large multimedia installations. By combining exceptional camera angles, augmented reality and video, visitors are being held a window to places they are connected to, but never saw this way.
