Tom Hegen's work focuses on aerial photography projects, showcasing the impact of human activity on earth and frequently highlighting the relationship between humans and nature. The Habitat project invites viewers to discover our planet from a new perspective, to comprehend the scale of human activity on our planet and, ultimately, to take responsibility. The exhibition features a series of 31 images, focusing on landscapes that have been transformed by human activity.
The exhibition will be displayed at the EESC from 26 October to 30 November 2020, in connection with the German Presidency of the Council of the EU. (ck)
