Is This What The End Of The World Will Look Like? See Photos

An Artist Steve McGhee creates apocalyptic images that seem to cover every possible way the world might end.

They include planes crashing down on New York City, blackholes opening up in Sydney Harbour and a large oil spill off the coast of France.

His work covers blazing bridges, a fallen Statue of Liberty, biblical flooding and massive earthquakes.

Today asteroid 2003 SD220 will zoom past Earth about 11 million km (6,787,600 miles) away, which is more than 28 times the distance between Earth and the Moon

Experts are saying it is now bigger than thought and could cause earthquakes and volcanos.

Steve, from London, Ontario, said he could have been influenced by one too many disaster movies.

He said: “I guess it’s too many disaster movies. That and the fact that I’m fascinated by things we, as human beings, have little or no control over.

“Disasters happen every day, all around the world. We just hear about the more fantastical ones the media focuses on.

“Every day someone, somewhere, is involved in a life-altering disaster. It doesn’t have to be a 300-foot wave crashing into a skyscraper.”

He said: “The reaction is great. I get lots of complimentary emails, and I really appreciate those.

“My work reflects human error in some cases, and just the bad luck and sheer terror of the human experience in others. Some people like it. Some not so much.

“My work is in no way intended to glorify or condone acts of terrorism or celebrate the loss of millions of souls who have perished in past events.

“Rather it is a commentary on the frailty of human existence and made to honor the loved ones left behind to deal with their unbearable loss.”
