Imagining Cities Underwater

World-famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower as well as Empire State Building are flooded by a sea of water in a frightening imagination of the future due to a Pole reversal.

Parisian professional photographer Francois Ronsiaux perceived ice sheets in the northern and southern would liquefy, leading to ocean levels to go up and filling London, Paris and New York with water, 300m above existing levels.

The photographic collection , ‘untitled land’ is created over 2 years and demonstrates a world in condition of chaos, exactly where the human population must significantly alter their way of life.

Here are the possible scenario when the ice melts drastically in the future.
