Spanish Photographer Al Mefer amazingly documents this project Strange Leaves. In his words about this project “This series follows my previous ones: “Alien Architecture”, “The Human-Alien Barrier” and “Deserts of the Future”, in developing a kind of pseudo-documentary in which humans have left the Earth because of the current environmental and social issues we’re facing, he explains. In “Stange Leaves”, this post-disaster biodiversity is displayed, musing over phenomena such as nuclear disasters and the future of nature. In this landscape, the unusual aspect of mutated plants is commonplace in a world where the bizarre is the only beauty left to be experienced.”

I was entering a void of no-nature
Of forests deserted by live creatures
Which inspired the sermon of no preacher
In this wasteland of ghosts a portraiture

When I encountered these monsters
Among lakes of firey mist
Some blood emerged from my wrists
And made of my cries a loud concert

I’d been doomed by the kiss
Of the children of the inert
Which with beauty threat no danger
‘Til one can’t fight any longer
