Aftermath by Jörn Vanhöfen
Alexander Zaxarov
Jul 23, 2020

In large-scale color photographs, Jörn Vanhöfen explores the scars wrought on the natural world by industry and commerce.

From the floor of a Chicago commodities exchange to a sweeping elevated highway that cuts through an idyllic Alpine landscape, Vanhöfen traces the path of commerce from its origins to its ultimate mark on the landscape. His images often draw on the dramatic conventions of Romanticism, but are updated to the present day to focus on the waste of industrial society, such as the aftermaths of fires, or eerie, post-apocalyptic scenes of car parts in automobile junkyards.
