WC World Citizen presents photographs taken by Gustav Willeit while traveling across Italy, China, Japan, California, Iceland, and Uganda.
Every corner of the planet hides traces of the past, and Willeit perfectly captures these evanescent memories, reflecting on the precariousness of our habitation.
Regardless of latitude and longitude, the presence of humans, civilizations, and anthropogenic interventions in natural ecosystems has caused an exceptionally rapid loss of biodiversity. The book is a journey delving into nature’s folds and cracks, increasingly impacted by humanity.
We are WCs: world citizens, as described by Japanese composer Sakamoto. And yet as WCs we run the risk of, slowly but inexorably, transforming into another WC of lesser noble nature.
Born in Brunico in the Dolomites, photographer Gustav Willeit captures vertiginous landscapes. He studied at the prestigious photography school of art F+F Schule für Kunst und Design in Zurich, exhibiting his photographs throughout Europe.
