The world is undergoing radical transformations daily, yet the majority of the time, we are not even aware of it; images are the only witnesses we have to these changes. There are some things, people, and practices that, if we look back on from a few years ago, we will realize that significant changes have occurred.
Twenty images in the following list depict a world quite distinct from the one we live in now.
