Practicing artifact photography at the Metropolitan Museum NYC. All artifacts are from Mexico (Maya/Aztec), ranging from 5th to 15th century. I’ll upload context for each one later on. For the purposes of this blog, the photos will be compressed for speed. Full high-res images are not accessible at the time being.
The visualization team at the American Museum of Natural History created a video that compresses 200,000 years of the Earth’s human population down to 6 minutes.
The video is a visual teaching tool that allows one to grasp big picture concepts in a small, digestible format. It depicts the human population evolving from 1 million to 1 billion within a span of 200,000 years, and from 1 billion to 7 billion within the short period of 200 years.
