Photos and captions by Gigi Midgley
The world has ended and there are big piles of steaming shit everywhere.
There’s also a lot of rubble and smoke, but mostly there’s shit—hot, black shit. A lone survivor, clad in a silver hazmat suit like you see in post-apocalyptic movies, picks through the shit and debris, searching for any sign of life. Nothing. No life. Just debris. And shit. But then something catches his eye: an undeveloped roll of film, property of one Gigi Midgley. Who is Gigi Midgley? She’s a model and a photographer, or at least she was before the devastating event that reduced civilisation to a smouldering mound of shit. The lone survivor in the silver hazmat suit wipes the shit from the roll and goes straight to the chemist to have it developed. These are the photos he sees when he gets the prints back 24 hours later…
