“When you think of what climate change looks like, perhaps you think of giant icebergs melting in the Arctic. But it’s so much more than that.” This piece from CNN features photos and words from photographers around the world, including VII’s Nichole Sobecki and Ed Kashi, that show us how the planet is changing.
Through the support of a National Geographic Society Grant, Nichole Sobecki will be part of a global project by eight women photographers from The Everyday Projects. The other photographers include Amrita Chandradas, Kuleshova Ksenia, Miora Rajaonary, Mridula Amin, Saiyna Bashir, Thana Faroq, and Danielle Villasana who received the National Geographic Society Grant on behalf of The Everyday Projects team.
This year, the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop was held in Kigali, Rwanda, and was a project of our partner the VII Academy and PhotoWings. The 7-day workshop set out to inspire and educate future generations of men and women to address important issues through the medium of photography. VII’s Nichole Sobecki, Daniel Schwartz, and Ron Haviv were all part of this year’s event.
In the last six months, National Geographic has published hundreds of photographs in print and online. Click here to see their photo editors’ favorites, including photo #33 by VII’s Nichole Sobecki.
