All the photos in recent years have been taken by the best photographers from National Geographic. With this exhibition, we not only want to depict serene scenery, but also the influence of mankind on the landscape - for good and for bad.

Seven characters looking quite familiar, each with a contemporary look, invite you to experience what life looked like a 1000 years ago.
