Mishka Henner’s photograph frames an aerial view of a feedlot in Texas, where ranchers working in the beef industry raise cattle for slaughter. The industry is a major contributor to global warming, deforestation, pollution, and freshwater depletion. It is also the second-largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions, behind fossil fuels. Feedlots house thousands of cows in confined spaces, where they are forced to eat a diet saturated with growth hormones and antibiotics. State laws often forbid photographs or films to be made of such feedlots without the consent of the owner. Taking advantage of a loophole in these laws, Henner created his aerial views of feedlots by compiling screenshots of satellite images from Google Earth. This process results in highly precise, though abstracted, representations of the landscape as seen from miles above.

This is a color photograph of a green frog. The image has a shallow depth of field, with only the frog in focus. The lower foreground and background are blurred, but it is apparent that the frog sits in a marsh, with water and grasses around it.
