Since the beginning of the millennium, Henrik Spohler has thema­tised the conse­quences of modern economic globa­li­zation in his photo series. A total of five groups of works are dedicated to the technical infra­struc­tures of a newly emerging infor­mation age, the changed world of work in incre­a­singly automated indus­trial production, the conse­quences of indus­trial agriculture, the hubs of global trade or basic research as a motor for future progress. The projects have been published as monographs and exhibi­tions.

Another field is the photo­graphic exami­nation of cultu­rally shaped lands­capes. For example, the series Parc du Doubs in western Switzerland was created as part of a residency programme. The newly published project Flatlands is dedicated to the Dutch landscape.
