Berlin-based artist Nicolas Moulin’s photographs presents us with quite a strange world; deserted landscape where bizarre structures hover over the natural world and seemingly become an extension of it. Some resemble World War II bunkers or even the last remains of a lost world, emphasizing the ways we relate to our immediate surroundings, be them real or imaginary.
