Global photography award touring exhibition documents the climate crisis
The Nest Summit, the official event partner of Climate Week NYC, by the Climate Group, announced it will bring the Decade of Change global photography exhibition, procured by 1854 Media and the British Journal of Photography, to New York City for the first time.
The exhibition, to be unveiled at the Javits Center in New York City during Climate Week NYC, September 21-22, 2021, has been made possible through partnerships with The Nest Summit and The Climate Museum. Each work was evaluated and chosen for display by a team of judges including Terry Tamminen, former CEO of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation; Paul Dickinson, Founder and Executive Chairman of CDP; Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, President of the Association for Indigenous Women and Peoples of Chad (AFPAT); and Miranda Massie, Director of The Climate Museum.
The result is a global creative response to the climate crisis; two series, 40 single images, and one moving image form a stunning visual display that addresses climate change in different ways with the goal of galvanising change.
Decade of Change is a global photography award and collaborative exhibition dedicated to documenting the defining matter of our time: the climate crisis.
In late 2019, the United Nations reported that countries are continuing to drift further off course in combating climate change. As the world turns on its axis, so the fragility of our planet becomes ever more pronounced: sea levels rising, ecosystems collapsing, livelihoods in peril.
With governments repeatedly failing to act, photography can serve as a mirror. A warning sound. A vehicle for truth. Harnessing British Journal of Photography’sglobal platform, Decade of Change will curate some of the world’s most powerful creative responses to the climate crisis in one of the farthest-reaching photography exhibitions the world has ever seen.
From humankind to wildlife, cityscapes to ecosystems, Decade of Change will speak both to the power and precariousness – the strength and frailty – of our planet. Selected work will teach, provoke, challenge, probe; it will celebrate all that we have to protect, and caution all that we have to lose.
