  • Internationally praised photo reportage
  • Often imitated but never equalled

Animals rule the world. Humanity is extinct...

This new photographic collection from Henk van Rensbergen, the godfather of urban exploring, invokes many questions. The beauty and desolation of Abandoned Places is still present, but it is given a new dimension as animals seek and find their place in a world that once belonged to humanity.

Van Rensbergen's photographs inspired the world famous biologist and bestselling author Desmond Morris. Morris' preface paints a picture about the planet after the extinction of mankind. Award-winning author Peter Verhelst contributes a short story in which he gets inside the head of the last man on earth.

What the press have said about this book...

"The Belgian photographer Henk van Rensbergen has set himself the vision of a deserted planet and created incredibly beautiful images for his new book series " No Man's Land ", where the world is dominated by animals - which do not rule the world, but simply populate it would."Brigitte  

"But what about when man is gone and their earthly achievements lay in disrepair? Who does the world belong to then? In one artist's imagination, it would become the literal stomping ground of the flora and fauna left behind."Daily Mail

"Four years has taken him to realize his latest project: No Man's Land, a book in which he captures the reality of a dystopian universe in which there are no more women or men, only the animals walk through the wreck. A journey that seeks to awaken the imagination and consciousness."Conde Nast Traveler Spain
