noun. an ordinary static photograph as opposed to a motion picture, especially a single shot from a cinema film.
Since 2011, I’ve been committed to bearing witness to issues of land, migration and social transformations, specifically as they relate to climate change and rising sea levels around the world.
Our systematic exploitation of natural resources as well as our frenzied global consumption have resulted in grave environmental problems that are fast becoming the key global issue for decades to come. Beyond that fact, what we’re seeing playing out on the ground are terrible human tragedies involving entire populations, left to fend for themselves.
Through attempting to tackle these issues on a daily basis, with limited means and as they face a shocking display of widespread indifference, some are no longer certain of anything when it comes to their future. The anticipated disappearance of their territory as a result of rising sea levels has cast doubt over everything. May their voices reach us wherever we may be, and may we learn from their experience, before their fate becomes ours.
