What If World’s All Power Grids Fail? Oh God The City Of Paris…You Must See

Did it ever occur to you that our lives are so much dependent on power that we take it for granted, never giving a thought what would happen if we lost electricity for days together? Well fear might have taken on you, but wait there is a positive side to it. If all the power grids fail then what we see at nights is pure, uncorrupted beauty. Don’t believe me yet? Let me introduce you to Thierry Cohen, who photographs the world’s major cities, seeking out views that resonate for him and noting the precise time, angle, and latitude and longitude of his exposure. As the world rotates around its axis, the stars that would have been visible above a particular city move to deserts, plains, and other places free of light pollution. By noting the precise latitude and angle of his cityscape, Cohen is able to track the earth’s rotation to places of atmospheric clarity like the Mojave, the Sahara, and the Atacama desert. There he sets up his camera to record what is lost to modern urban dwellers. Stitching the two images, Cohen creates a single new image full of resonance and nuance.Cohen’s work remind us of what we are doing to this planet. We are polluting it so much that the very air we breath is becoming poisonous day by day. Here are the best of his work how our cities could have been if didn’t mess up with the planet and given there are no lights switched on.
