My inspiration for doing this was I had been looking at pictures of Chernobyl and other abandoned buildings and manmade structures. I think it is interesting the way things like abandoned books get reclaimed by nature, and even though humans can’t see a way to live and carry on, nature always finds a way to thrive. Nature is relentless whereas human nature is single minded and always goes with the easy way which means we don’t always find a way.
