  • What if animals were the only survivors? This new photographic series by Henk van Rensbergen is uncanny and spellbinding as it pictures a post-apocalyptic world. The captivating beauty of the desolation conveyed by his Abandoned Places books persists in these images, but gains an added dimension with the depiction of animals in search of their place in a world once dominated by human beings. Desmond Morris, the world famous zoologist and artist wrote an introduction and the author Peter Verhelst composed a memorable epilogue.
