Downtown gallery space Snap! Orlando has announced their first exhibition set for 2022, and it's Nick Brandt's traveling This Empty World photography series.

Opening Feb. 5 and running through April 22, This Empty World — the exhibition and book — showcases color photos shot by English activist-photographer Brandt in Kenya, aiming to demonstrate humankind's seismic impact on the natural world through elaborately constructed images.

Musee Magazine called the photo series "a bold assault on human greed, capitalism, and consumer culture."

“I want my images to achieve two things in this regard — to be an elegy to a world that is tragically vanishing, to make people see what beauty is disappearing. Also, to try and show that animals are sentient creatures equally as worthy of life as humans," said Brand in a press statement.
