Apocalyptic photos show the consequences of the magnetic poles inversion

French artist Francois Ronsiaux reflects on the potential consequences of the inversion of the Earth's magnetic poles in this photographic project called United Land. The manipulated pictures show iconic architectonic landmarks around the world flooded by sea water.

The project is articulated around the «Survival Map», representing the planet earth with a sea level higher than 300m (984 feet.)
