Known as the Mar de Plastico – or Sea of Plastic – the complex covers around 350 square km, making it the world’s largest plastic greenhouse complex.

Now, German photographer Bernhard Lang has snapped the area from above for his Aerial Views series, a project that aims to show the impact of humans on their environments from above.

The complex – an area of intensive crop production since the 1960s – features alongside Slovenian beaches with ranks of beach umbrellas and a coal mining pit in Germany.
