Last Human

Digital photography printed on satin paper

This photo is shot on the balcony of Copan, one of the iconic buildings in the center of Sao Paulo. No one knows if this tree grows on a skyscraper’s terrace by coincidence or by intentional plantation. It stands alone in a “concrete forest” in the biggest city of South America, under the sun, the wind and the rain, surrounded by fancy restaurants, busy traffic and numerous homeless…Does modern urbanization has an end? Can this tree stand there forever?
