A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World, by Robert Renhui Zhao, seeks to document and reflect on the myriad ways in which human action and intervention are slowly altering the natural world. The series presents a catalogue of curious creatures and life-forms that have evolved in often unexpected ways to cope with the stresses and pressures of a changed world. Other organisms documented in the series are the results of human intervention, mutations engineered to serve various interests and purposes ranging from scientific research to the desire for ornamentation.
The project was a finalist in the 2014 Lodz Fotofestiwal Grand Prix, selected for an editorial focus by GUP's Chief Editor.
A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World is also available in book format.
