His photographs consider our changing relationships with nature in order to more closely speak to the world we live in. In his latest series of photographs, he builds fictional landscapes with artificial lighting to paint an astonishing world imagined of the future.

He challenges color’s representational qualities to blur the line between natural and artificial as he reflects on the fragility of our environment and hopes for a renewable tomorrow.

"The world today is very different from the one Humboldt documented, as virtually every corner of the earth has been seen or altered by human use. We are within a new geological epoch of the Anthropocene, a time defined by radioactive particles scattered across the earth by human activity. 'Afterlife' is an attempt to re-discover our affected landscape as Humboldt must have felt as he saw strange new species and places. It is a way of visualizing landscapes as well as our own ideas of nature. " -Christopher Rodriguez.
