If you’re in Shanghai this weekend, I’ve been invited to speak about my work documenting climate change issues in Asia at the Coal+Ice Exhibition, a project of the Asia Society’s Center on US-China Relations.
I’ll be presenting my work at the Vanke Xuhui Center (55 Ding An Road, Shanghai, China) from 14:00-15:30.
I look forward to seeing you there.
“Coal + Ice is a documentary photography exhibition featuring the work of 30 photographers from China, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Norway, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom, whose work, brought together here, visually narrates the hidden chain of actions triggered by mankind’s use of coal.
This photographic arc moves from deep within the coal mines to the glaciers of the greater Himalaya where greenhouse gasses are warming the high altitude climate. As these mighty glaciers melt at an accelerated pace, the great rivers of Asia that flow from the Tibetan Plateau into the oceans are disturbed, and the lives of billions of people downstream are disrupted.
