"The photo volume ‘This World and Others Like It’ investigates the role of the 21st century explorer by combining computer modeling with analogue photographic processes. Within the contemporary wilderness, robots have replaced photographers as mediators producing images completely dislocated from human experience. This suggests that now the sublime landscape is only accessible through the boundaries of technology.
Drawing upon the language of 19th Century survey images, Drew NIKONOWICZ questions in his photo volume 'This World and Others Like It' their relationship with current methods of record making. Thousands of explorable realities exist through rover and probe based imagery, virtual role-playing, and video game software." (© Fw: Books, 2019)
