An exhibition of NOOR photographers' work will be presented at Fotografia Europea in a group show titled, "A NOOR JOURNAL ON THE CHANGING PLANET, 2009 – 2015."
The exhibition curated by Laura Serani features work from Consequences, NOOR's group project on climate change from 2009, as well as a body of new work, Solutions, documenting positive measures that have been taken to curb global warming.
This wide-ranging group project underscores the urgent action required to combat these dramatic situations emerging around the issue of climate change. Presented for the first time in Copenhagen in December 2009 during the United Nations Climate Summit, Consequences has continued to develop into various chapters with the production of the new series, Solutions, which sets out to identify technologies and initiatives aimed at limiting the effects of global warming.
