Human Environments Photo Contest 2017

Theme: Human Environments

Throughout history, humans have learned how to build custom environments to host both their private and public lives, and have progressively perfected such spaces to adjust to their increasingly refined needs. In 2017, how do our man-made environments look, and what do they say about the contemporary societies we live in?
