Climate Visuals has been presented with a unique opportunity to share some of the imagery from a photo series produced by CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation. This series focuses on ‘survivors’ of climate-induced migration.
The images are created by award winning photojournalist GMB Akash and they are beautiful. Their aesthetics become all the more profound when juxtaposed with the heartbreaking stories behind the images.
GMB Akash’s powerful written accounts lends added weight to the images of suffering and survival they accompany. As a result this series is a striking illustration of 4 of our 7 Climate Visuals Principles: Show Real People, Tell New Stories, Show Local Climate Impacts, and Show Emotionally Powerful Impacts. When viewed as a body of work it is very likely to have a strong effect on an audience.
The 18 images that we have decided to display are all housed under our ‘Impacts’ Collection. Each image includes a short caption and we encourage everyone to click on the ‘Read More’ at the bottom of each image.
If you wish to reproduce these images in your own material please contact the photographer directly.
