Tom Hegen, a superb photographer out of Munich, Germany, presented a new series which focuses on greenhouses and their importance with the population of the world growing so rapidly.
Writing about the series Hegen stated “The Dutch have created the most advanced area in the world for controlled environment agriculture and have become world leaders in agricultural innovation. However, there are also consequences this growing method brings with it, like light pollution or growing crops out of season and ship them around the world, so people can eat strawberries year-round. Ordinances have been developed in which up to 98% of the electric lighting must be contained within a greenhouse facility by using blackout screens and curtains along the sides and roofs.”
