The photos in this collection are a stunning visual exploration of the effects of climate change.Â The Canary Project is an organization that creates art and supports artists with the intention of engaging viewers in the realities of global warming.Â For Canary Project Photos: The Landscape of Climate Change, founders of the Canary Project, Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris, have collected images of landscapes around the globe directly impacted by a warming planet and have documented communities that are working proactively to conserve their endangered lands.
In their own words:
Correcting misconceptions about climate change and mobilizing society to build a more sustainable future will require a concerted effort from all sectors of society. We believe art has an important role to play in this process, particularly when executed in collaboration with other disciplines and when benefiting from the organizational strengths of an entity such as The Canary Project. Art has the capacity to penetrate received notions, generate media attention and create lasting visceral impact – all of which can be a more effective catalyst to action than mere rational apprehension.
