Domesticated Landscapes examines the human struggle for habitat. It is a genuine behavioral trait of our species to alter the environment in order to fulfill our very own needs. Eventually this demand of resources has a profound effect on surrounding landscape.

Las Vegas is the vastest expanding metropolis in the United States, with a population increase of 41.8 per cent from 2000 to 2010. The harsh climate and the nature of the environment increase the city’s need for energy. The creation of a habitat for 575 000+ people within a single decade drastically transformed the terrain.

This book featured in PLACE a two-part photography exhibition by Edinburgh Napier University Students in Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Edinburgh on April 29th – May 3rd 2013.
