Dysturb and Magnum Foundation are teaming up to #reframeclimate in the streets of Charlottesville, VA and on Instagram during the 2016 Look3 festival.
Dysturb and Magnum Foundation have joined together to highlight compelling documentary images by photographers from around the world that are telling stories of climate change not only as a factor in our daily lives, but also as a player in major socio-political shifts.
Each print presents an SMS prompt inviting viewers to hear directly from the photographer about the issue depicted, and engage in a conversation on Instagram. Pertinent statistics on climate resilience, environmental justice, and urban governance are included alongside the images.
From its origins as a street intervention in Paris during the #COP21 Climate Change Summit to the city of Charlottesville, #reframeclimate challenges the stereotypical notions of what climate change looks like in order to expand and deepen perceptions about its many implications.
For the last two years, Dysturb has been bringing images to streets around the world to raise awareness of current and pressing issues. Magnum Foundation, a non-profit founded by the members of Magnum Photos, fosters creativity, innovation, and diversity in socially engaged photography.
The participating photographers are Jonas Bendiksen, Sima Diab, Matilde Gattoni, Georgina Goodwin, Katharina Hesse, Ed Kashi, Arati Kumar-Rao, Yuyang Liu, Ed Ou, Probal Rashid, Vlad Sokhin, Ruben Salgado Escudero, Mauricio Susin and Ian Teh.
