Hard Rain @ Kirstenbosch – pics just posted!

A teaser for those of you who haven’t gotten round to checking out the Hard Rain photo exhibition at Kirstenbosch yet: It features numerous climate change photographs, but addresses a much broader spectrum of themes relating to the environment and human rights.

Click on images to enlarge:

I found this image most disturbing:

A Russian couple getting married, wearing  gas masks, to protest the toxic air pollution in their town.

There are things happening in this world that will make your blood run cold.

Before, and after. And it wasn’t exactly a century later either:

The images from this exhibition feature in a coffee table book that can be purchased at Kirstenbosch – I reckon it’d be a good call as a Christmas pressie for the thinking and politically engaged.
