By taking simple aerial photographs of well known monuments in the United States and cleverly altering them using digital methods, Nickolay Lamm has created art that may seem basic in its compostion but certainly manages to purvey a powerful message about the dangers of our planet’s future.

By covering these high-traffic areas, buildings and commonly photographed structures with higher water levels, Nickolay Lamm has crafted a bleak and post-apocalyptic vision of our future that is more terrifying because it is completely plausible.
