Climate change, demography, nuclear war, migrations. Following the experts opinion, in the coming decades we are going to face huge challenges. And for the first time in history, we are dealing with our survival. This extraordinary series of work by photographer, journalist and videomaker Alberto Giuliani, explores what science is doing around the world to face the future. In his journey across the globe he meets those unknown men and women carefully handling our destiny and narrates places where human beings are organising their resilience.
During his ongoing project Surviving Humanity Alberto Giuliani has already lensed the North Pole scientific base and Global Seed Vault in Arctic Svalbard, Cryopreservation centres in the USA, institutes and universities working with humanoid robotics in Japan, NASA astronauts simulating life on Mars Hi-Seas IV NASA Mission in Hawaii, edible insect farming in Netherland, biosphere to preserve forest’s biodiversity in the UK, dog cloning in Korea, Human Genomic research and China National GeneBank in China, the first Artificial Sun in Germany, and luxury bunkers for civil communities in the USA. His poignant imagery is a reminder that whilst some are doing their very best for the planet right now, some are preparing for the next.
