25 images by photographers from around the world will be pasted on public facing buildings and facades throughout the Paris, folding compelling, documentary images into the visual vernacular of climate change to spark dialogue amongst passersby.
Magnum Foundation and #Dysturb are joining together to curate 25 images by photographers from around the world and adhere them to public facing buildings and facades throughout the city of Paris. This initiative will fold compelling, documentary images into the visual vernacular of climate change to spark dialogue amongst passersby that won’t be seated at the negotiating table.
Each print will present a pertinent statistic on climate resilience, environmental justice, and urban governance, and an SMS interaction to hear the photographer tell the story behind their image. In unison with informative facts, we’re leveraging the voices of photographers — the people with eyes constantly on our world.
Both #Dysturb and Magnum Foundation believe deeply in making photography accessible. In a cultural hub like Paris, images pasted in the streets from all corners of the world, near and distant, remind us of how powerful we are together. We, and the nimble factories of ideas, technologies, and cultural expressions that we live in, are the solution to the issues our planet is facing.
Many thanks to our partner #Dysturb, to Don Mosteller and Alisa Zomer from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and to Lisa Jamhoury, Supreet Mahanti, Rosalie Yu, and Julia Irwin from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU Tisch
