For the past two years, photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen has circled the globe exploring the consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. With support provided by DS, the New York Times and the UN Environment Programme, Kadir travelled to Bangladesh, Fiji, Kiribati, Panama (Guna Yala islands), Papua New Guinea (the Carteret atoll), the United Kingdom and the USA to document some of the areas hardest hit thus far by the effects of climate change.
DS is pleased to announce the launch of the ‘Where Will We Go?’ exhibition at the upcoming COP20 meetings in Lima, Peru from 1-12 December 2014. Details are available here on this extraordinary travelling exhibition which is the culmination of the astounding photographs, films and audio interviews that Kadir has compiled. The multimedia exhibition was made possible through the hard work of Kadir and his team, backed with financial support from DS, UNEP, Eyes on Media, NOOR, and the Netherlands Embassy in Lima.
After Lima, the exhibition will travel first to Santiago, Chile and then to Amsterdam at the National Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaartsmuseum), among many other venues including during the major Paris Climate Conference (COP 21), set for December 2015, as well as possible showings in Geneva, Switzerland; vaduz, Liechtenstein; the Nobel Institute in Oslo and elsewhere.
