The environment: a pressing subject to which the world of photography is paying more and more attention. The photographers have addressed the theme with very different approaches. On the one hand, the investigation and the denouncement of the consequences, often dramatic and irreversible, of climate changes and unsustainable growth that has destroyed habitats and ecosystems and endangered several species. On the other, the search for the beauty of nature and the celebration of it.
As stated by Joel Sartore, one of the most committed photographers on the environmental front, photography is a very powerful tool, “capable of showing environmental problems as nothing else can and it can bring people to worry about it”.
The most effective story about this long history of social injustices and gruelling environmental struggles is the investigation by the Franco-Venezuelan photojournalist Mathieu Asselin with his Monsanto project. A photo investigation, tells the story of Monsanto that, from the beginning, has been known for the little transparency of its conduct, controversies with scientists and public opinion, investigations, cover-ups and scandals.
Can the simple celebration of natural beauty communicate the importance of protecting the environment? How to make mountains an icon of the environmental issue in general? Photographer Fabiano Ventura tries to answer those questions with his work The trail of glaciers.
“Meet Bob” is the visual tale of an encounter, a rehabilitation, of the love that man must place in the care of any animal which is sick or in need. Bob gets treated and gets to live among humans for a long time because, despite having been saved, he is no longer able to survive in the wild.
Mitch Epstein’s photographic work develops, from the earliest productions, around the delicate balance that links nature and society. A sometimes virtuous and prolific relationship, more often complex and conflictual.
Can photography change the world? At least it can help. Images are an influential tool and they can drive attention on urgent issues. A book has been published in 2018: Photographers against wildlife crime, that managed to bring together 24 renowned wildlife photographers and their acclaimed works, creating a powerful visual narration to report international wildlife crime.
