CERN and the artisans of the Universe is a project I've done about this incredible place, the CERN. What is the universe made of? How did it start? Physicists at CERN are seeking answers, using some of the world's most powerful particle accelerators and reading results with such huge detectors, like this one which was under maintenance. In these days the project is exhibit at NUCLEUS, the Noorderlicht 2017 International Photography Festival. This 24th edition is about science and the representation of it by photographers. #cern #prints #technology #science #future #futurology #detector

Inside one of the biggest greenhouse in the world, in the Netherlands, which looks like a render, but it's an indoors that provides optimal growing conditions for lettuce and other leafy greens. At Siberia B.V. Each one of the greenhouse’s 22 indoor acres yields approx 10 time as much lettuce as traditional outdoor crops and cuts the need for chemicals by 97 percent.
This tiny country feed the world is online and it appears on the September issue of National Geographic Magazine.
Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto, I'll keep posting images from this project. #agriculture #hunger #food #foodcrisis #modernfarmer #farmer #greenhouse #organic #lettuce #netherlands #technology #future #futuristic #landscape #drone #dronefly

Professor Ruth is checking the harvesting quality of the Algae bioreactor at the Algae park at Wageningen University. The university is working on a fifteen year-roadmap project (2010-2025) that aims to develop a commercial and sustainable production chain for food, feed, chemicals, materials and fuels from microalgae. #agriculture #hunger #netherlands #sustainable #algae #future #futurology #technology #energy #greenhouse #globalwarming #hunger #light #netherlands #organic #vegetables

Flying over the port the Maasvlakte 2 an entire area of the port of Rotterdam where approximately 2000 hectares will be reclaimed from the sea. It's a major civil engineering project in the Netherlands, constructing a new port and supporting infrastructure on reclaimed land adjoining the Maasvlakte. It will be used by ports related industries as an extension of the Port. The port is the biggest in Europe and the second largest export port in the world when it comes to vegetables, fruit, and flowers.

This futuristic state of the art facility in the Netherlands is where 150,000 eggs hatch every month. Produce chicken meat on a massive scale, in the healthiest way, is the aim of this kind of fully automated warehouse for poultry production. 'This tiny country feeds the world' is a story produced for @natgeo magazine and published in the September issue. #chicken #poultry #technology #hunger #meat #netherlands #future #futurology

Flying over the Westland, The Netherlands, during a classic foggy-rainy day. This area is the most advanced in the world for agro-farming technology where crops grow around the clock and in every kind of weather. The futuristic Dutch farmers of the Westland believe that we need to grow more with less and in a healthy environment to solve the famine which will afflict our planet in the next decades. Those greenhouses inside have the perfect environment to optimized the crops growing. Fully automated on climate, water and without using chemicals.
Hot weather is ideal for traditional farming, but it could be a real enemy for this agro-farming systems. Many countries around the world including China, Indonesia, USA, Pakistan, north European countries among others are investing in this king of agro-farming technology to grow vegetables. Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to see more images of how the future of agriculture could look like.

A local farmer is running early in the morning before going to work inside one of those greenhouse in the Westland, the Netherlands. This is the most advanced area in the world for agro-farming technology where crops grow around the clock and in every kind of weather. #agriculture #westland #future #light #greenhouse #netherlands #vegetables #sustainable #organic #crops #technology #drone #dronephotography #dronefly

Here we are at Koppert Cress @koppertcress greenhouse the largest worldwide company producing micro vegetables. LED lights casts a red glow on leafs and workers. The range in taste from onions to oysters of those leafs that I tasted was incredible. Top chefs around the world love this company.

This young man, Paul, is a Dutch modern city farmer working at Urban Farmer greenhouse built on the rooftop of a former Philips factory in the Hague, The Netherlands. They can harvest approximately 300kg of fresh vegetables per week. #agriculture #hungercrisis #modernfarmer #technology #farmer #urban #urbanfarming #organic #crops #tomatoes #greenhouse

Wageningen University in the Netherlands is the most important agricultural university in the world and the epicenter of the agricultural innovation in Holland. Here is the Lumen building, one of the urban green design buildings which are part of the campus. How the future of sustainable farming could look like ? How the world is going to front the hunger crisis in the next decades ? Those questions brought me for @natgeo in the Netherlands to document this small country that has become an agricultural giant and it propose the most advanced high tech agro farming solutions to grow more with less.

Photo @lucalocatelliphoto The traditional landscape of Holland can be seen here, classical polders (reclaimed land) is a unique landmark of this country. Almost half of the country’s land has been reclaimed from the sea. The skill in handling water is one of the reason the Netherlands has become an agricultural giant and it propose the most advanced high tech agro farming solutions to grow more with less.

Inside this jungle of tomato plants illuminated by LED lighting Mr. Henk a leading world authority for growers inspects the plants. This picture is taken at Delphy, a research and development centre in the Netherlands where academia and the private sector join together for experimental research.
