There are more than enough films out there that use and envision a near apocalyptic future, but perhaps none really capture it like Levi Wedel's Invisible City. Levi hails from Alberta, Canada and the... Invisible City project is a number of photos taken at night on medium format film. The scenes depicted are devoid of people--and when you look through the images it's really easy to feel as if you're completely alone in the scene. This sense of being alone leads to an eerie uneasiness that someone or something may pop out and get you; and that something is creeping in the darkness.
"I am currently working as a Psychologist, creating photos both as a part of my job and as compensation." says photographer Kay Adams in her email to us. "Ever since I was 16, I tried to get my hands... on everything related to photography. I started digital, but switched almost completely to analog photography."

I close my eyes. The air is cold, blanketing the ground in a light frost, causing harsh shivers that race down my spine. I hear birds in the distance screaming at one another in a cacophony of song... and screech. The star-filled sky above me is a deep romantic blue. I take a deep breath. I can smell smoke from a campfire that was extinguished only hours ago. I slowly open my eyes. Along the eastern horizon I see a glow; faint, but growing.
Sorry Sir Ian but Ginger's kind of having a moment with your bestie
