We have talked a lot about light pollution and how it affects the view of the night skies. But have you ever considered how much air pollution affects us as photographers? Of course, it’s above all terrible for our health, but its bad impact stretches way beyond that. It even affects how we see the world around us – if we even manage to see anything through the smog.
Wanting to draw attention to the quality of the air you breathe, HouseFresh wanted to show you how ten famous views could look if local human-made air pollution levels increase. And it’s not only a hypothetical scenario – the levels of air pollution they applied in the study actually exist, so it’s not some fantasy world or era. It’s the ones we already live in.
