The continents of our planet are in constant motion. Geologists predict that within 250 million years virtually all landmass will have merged into one single supercontinent.
To make thees pictures, I have visited a number of cities around the world such as Los Angeles, Bangkok, Budapest, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Mexico City and Stockholm. There I have photographed the street life on negative black-and-white film. I then rewound the film and exposed the entire roll once again in another city somewhere else in the world.
The resulting double-exposures show different cities, countries and continents merged together. The Forecast series is an attempt at documenting the future—although this in itself goes against the very nature of photography.
