The Magnum Photos member shot the series over the course of 90,000 Km that spanned two years and the results create a remarkably unique visual story. In this new video by Derek Hanion the photographer reveals his approach and ideas behind his work.

“Minutes to Midnight is an apocalyptic book, but they are real documents, they’re real events, real moments in time that have happened,” explains Magnum photographer Trent Parke. Shot over the course of two years and covering over 90,000 km, Minutes to Midnight is a seductively dark, black and white, enigmatic narrative of Parke’s homeland of Australia.
