This documentary photography exhibition featuring the work of 30 photographers from China, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Norway, Italy, Germany and the UK, whose work, brought together here, visually narrates the hidden chain of actions triggered by mankind's use of coal.
This photographic arc moves from deep within the coal mines to the glaciers of the greater Himalaya where greenhouse gasses are warming the high altitude climate. All these mighty glaciers melt at an accelerated pace, the great rivers of Asia that flow from the Tibetan Plateau into the oceans are disturbed, and the lives of billions of people downstream are disrupted.
Photographers at the Opening:
Clifford Ross, David Breashears, Geng Yunsheng, Niu Guozheng, Song Chao, Wang Mianli, Wu Qi, Yu Haibo.
