OUR CHANGING CLIMATE - A PHOTOGRAPHERS MISSION
Before I begin, I would like to thank you for taking the time to check out my project. I value your time so the fact that you are reading this makes me happy already. Here we go!
FUNDING NEEDED TO DOCUMENT AUSTRALIA'S ROLE IN CLIMATE CHANGE
May through to July 2013 I will be undertaking a journey around Australia to photograph Australia's role in climate change. The reason for this undertaking is the urgent need for a compelling and thorough visual documentation of Australia’s role in what I believe to be the most important issue humanity faces today. This documentation is of critical importance as until now there has been very little effort to visually document our changing climate. In other words – there is an astonishing lack of visual material which we can use to draw attention to how and why our climate is changing.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
I need your financial support, how ever large or small to kick this dream into reality. Your contribution will help me to do what I do best; to visually communicate my passion for change. An exhibition will come of this work and it will help further my ongoing project to inspire others.
WHY HAVE I CHOSEN AUSTRALIA
This project is more relevant now that it has ever been. While Australia has taken steps to address climate change through the introduction of a carbon price and renewable energy investment, all the hype around cost of living, threats of repeal and the supposed lack of global action is muddying the waters and creating uncertainty. We need to remind people of the challenge we’re facing and the need, regardless of political persuasion, to take meaningful action to reduce our pollution. While climate change can often feel like a distant threat, the recent extremes have starkly shown us what’s in store. This body of work will help make the impacts of climate change tangible and locally relevant, and equally, show that the solutions already exist. We’re on the precipice of a global low-carbon revolution, and Australia must play its part. My hope is that this project will help people see that strong action on climate change is both urgent and rewarding and that a healthier, more prosperous, low-carbon future is worth fighting for.
