In the Christian version of the Creation story, the third day was the day all of life came to be. In this modern, technology-driven world, photographer Henrik Spohler seek out the beauty of industrial and agricultural landscapes.
In the series and book "The Third Day", the German photographer outlines the relationship of the ever-advanced humanity with the flora; the role of humans as 'creator' is questioned.
Plants, where people get their produce and food, are now combined with technology -- from genetic technology, greenhouses -- both man and flora adjust to this unique feat of civilization.
Man continues to need nature; even so he alters, adapts with his surroundings. He irrigates deserts, make fruits and vegetables grow behind fences and in plastic. He is encouraged to subdue the earth. Spohler's landscapes are taken in California, Spain, Netherlands and Germany.
