Brad Temkin has been documenting human impact on the contemporary landscape for over 30 years. For Rooftop, his latest series, the Chicago-based photographer chronicles the burgeoning green roof movement taking place on top of city buildings all over the world. The beautifully-composed, large-format photos serve as exemplary records of the cultural shift towards sustainable design.
