It's the end of the world for some

Ending Stories is a series of works by Dutch photographer Wouter le Duc who is drawn to characters who believe the world is going to end very soon. As he explains: "At the beginning of 2012, my mum told me she was preparing for the end of times. According to her, this would take place on the 21st of December 2012, as predicted by the Mayan calendar. I told her that I didn't want to talk about it.

"In this project I investigate not only my mother or the end of the Mayan calendar. I focus on different individuals and groups of people from different spiritual, religious and practical movements. They all share the conviction that the end of the world as we know it is coming."
