Hannah Rothstein’s new project, National Parks 2050, illustrates what the National Parks will look like if we continue to allow the effects of climate change.

“And we were the land’s because we were eating and the land let some of us eat. And we were the ground because we eat and the ground let some among us eat. And yet the land was never some of ours. But the ground was never sure with us. Is never some of ours. Be never certain with us. Never will be rightly some of ours. Be correctly never certain with us. Never to be owned. Never to be had. And the land’s green is the land’s owning of us. And the green of the ground is the possession of the ground of us.” – Juliana Spahr, “Some of We And The Land That Was Never Ours”

It’s a strange courage
you give me ancient star:
shine alone in the sunrise
toward which you lend no part!
Shine on, lovelies,
