The End of Times | Photographer: Emil Hartvig | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Emil Hartvig, a documentary/art photographer based in Copenhagen, recently returned from the Midwest where he photographed ‘preppers’ in their homes and surrounds.  Preppers are those who are actively preparing for the end of the world—for society as we know it to collapse. These men, women and children study survival techniques as well as store weapons, ammunition and food in order to ready themselves for the end of modern society. They have varying beliefs on how the world will end including nuclear war, terrorism, natural disasters and/or economic collapse.
