How is climate change changing lives? How photography as a medium can improve and innovate climate change communication and contribute to the climate transition?

Ed Kashi has been at the forefront of new approaches to visual storytelling for 40 years, documenting many of the social and geopolitical issues that define our times. His work has contributed to the success of @EverydayClimateChange.
