On the historic occasion of 150 heads of state gathering in Paris for COP2015, the United Nations Climate Change Conference, and the subsequent adoption of the Paris Agreement, we are proud to present this episode of our podcast recognizing photography’s ongoing role in addressing humanity’s most serious concerns. Three photographers, all with a wide body of work — in photojournalism, documentary, and fine art — discuss their photography as it regards climate change. From collaborative efforts to going it alone, international adventure to gaining the trust of small communities, aerial photography to dusty river beds, Ed Kashi, Greg Kahn, and Carolyn Monastra bring their distinctive approaches to the subject and agree that photography should play an important role in elucidating large and small stories and advocating for progress and innovation.

Guests: Greg Kahn, Ed Kashi, Carolyn Monastra
