The Third Day

"Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself" God said on the third day of Creation. He created nature. And later on: humans. German photographer Henrik Spohler captured man's cultivation of nature in his photo book: The Third Day.

The book shows places where man assumes the role of Creator when he uses genetic engineering to give plants features that are even more profitable. Our agriculture has become a monster industry. A beast that looks very, very pretty on pictures though.
