Environmental Transformation: Changes Through Photography

Eddo Hartmann, Netherland
The Collective Landscape

The Netherlands is known for its efficient agriculture systems but unfortunately it comes with a cost. Until recently, arable production systems on Dutch land were mainly created for their efficiency, while ecological functions were not taken into account. In fact, it is the world’s second agricultural export country, after the United States. In order to maintain this extremely high level of production on this tiny piece of earth, farmers use enormous amounts of pesticides and fertilisers. As a result the landscape has become more homogenous, sterile and empty over the past five decades. Recently we are facing more and more problems and we are not able to make a sustainable choice.

 “The Human Face of Climate Change”

Mathias Braschler and Monika Fischer traveled to every continent and visited 16 different countries to meet people who are directly affected by the consequences of climate change. They shot environmental portraits and recorded video/audio interviews to give these people a voice. The men and women they met told in their own words how changes in the climate have affected their lives.
In this talk Mathias and Monika tell about their experience meeting all these people around the globe who are experts in climate change because they live so close to nature and observe the acceleration in changes from a unique perspective.
