I’m pleased to say that the EverydayClimateChange Instagram group feed that I work on with James Whitlow Delano, Ed Kashi, Nina Berman, Matilde Gattoni, and many others photographers is going from strength to strength.
Founded by James this year, the feed launched on January 1st and now has nigh on 20,000 followers looking at the images the photographers post from all 5 continents featuring the effects climate change is having on our world.
I’ve enjoyed participating in this feed, to learn from the various issues brought up through the work of the other photographers, the stories they’ve covered and the multi-faceted face of climate change and what it means for us and how we live, and how we will live in the future. I’ve also been very pleased to see the level of commenting and interaction with the images by the viewers, both in Instagram, and on Facebook or Twitter where we cross-link the images.
The EverydayClimateChange feed has now entered into a collaboration with WWF’s Earth Hour blog, and now Earth Hour will feature a weekly image from our Instagram on their blog, bringing our work and the issues covered to their wide audience and helps us to grow and to get our message out there. Earth Hour did an interview with James about why he set it all up, and now the weekly images are running, and I’m pleased that this week one of my recent images from the Nile Delta (from an assignment in Cairo two weeks ago) has just run. The image is below, but please check out the Earth Hour blog to see the caption and story, and to read the interview with James Whitlow Delano and see other photography, and please keep checking back or join us on Instagram!
