Thanks to the thousands of people who participated in this assignment! What better way to understand the real impact of climate change than to ask a global community of photographers to share their stories about it. Our hope was to harness the power of collaborative storytelling and have a real impact on both policy and public perception.

Rooftop07aPyramids at Giza – Cairo
Though the hotel itself bears the unremarkable name of the Pyramids Inn Motel, if you climb to the roof, you’ll be treated to one of the best views of the Giza pyramids to be found anywhere. Lined up along the horizon like Rockettes, it’s a wonderful sight, so long as it’s not obscured by sandstorms.

Olaf Heine’s Brazil

Olaf Heine’s Brazil
Photographic love letter to a country whose shape, volume and emotions are defined by sensual curves.
interview by Christopher Austopchuk

OlafHeine07a OlafHeine07b OlafHeine07c OlafHeine07dWhen did you become a photographer?
Olaf Heine: My father gave me my first camera when I was eight. It came naturally to record things that surrounded me. Others wrote diaries; I photographed. But my friends’ bands inspired me to work professionally, back in the early nineties in Berlin.

Sabine Wild | Beyond Sharpness

The photographic experimentation of Sabine Wild, German, living in Berlin, began in 2007 when she left her job to be a photographer full-time. Her point-of-view is decidedly an « elevated » one over the vast megalopolises of the world, in the United States, Arab Emirates and Asia in a particular. The urban landscape is her exclusive subject: Hong Kong photographed from its characteristic high-rise parking lots, Manhattan from a helicopter, Tokyo from all available observation towers and Dubai from a seaplane.

SabineWild06a SabineWild06b SabineWild06c SabineWild06d SabineWild06eThe scenes of this photographer are highly abstract and have the result of destabilizing the viewer. The reference points are metamorphosed. It is not merely a question of aesthetics and detailed, expert post-production work, but also research and experimentation aimed at portraying photographically.
