Visualizing Climate Change: Photo exhibit captures a warming world

A new photo exhibit at the Mesa Lab, "Visualizing Climate Change: The Work of GHG Photos," brings together the work of a handful of photographers dedicated to illustrating Earth's changing climate. The exhibit, which is located on the lab's first floor, is featured until December 31.

The photographers of GHG Photos (named after the scientific shorthand for "greenhouse gases") travel the world documenting the causes and effects of climate change, as well as attempts to mitigate it. Their images capture a range of subjects, including forest fires, floods, glacial retreat, sea-level rise, Arctic habitat loss, and more.

The show was designed by GHG Photos with the Henry Gregg Gallery and premiered at the NY Photo Festival. It features the work of Gary Braasch, Ashley Cooper, Benjamin Drummond, Peter Essick, Steve Kazlowski, and Joshua Wolfe.

The exhibit comes to NCAR as part of the Front Range's annual EcoArts Connections—a celebration of art and science with a focus on climate change.
