Earth Emotions is a photography exhibit that aims to inspire change by showcasing local stories and contributing to new narratives around our climate crisis.
Earth Emotions is a collaborative exhibition of local photography dedicated to sharing experiences of the multiple crises we face because we’ve crossed planetary boundaries. These include the climate, biodiversity, soils, freshwater, oceans, and waste crises. We’re the first generation to feel the impact of these crises, and perhaps the last who can do something about them. While that might feel overwhelming, the planetary emergency could also be a portal to a brighter future.
Over 100 images were submitted to the exhibit by Te Tauihu residents of all ages and levels of photography experience. Using the medium of photography individuals offer insights, share their emotions, and explore responses.
The exhibit was curated by Ann Wheatley, Peter Kemp and Emma Jane Hughs and has been showcased in public and online. If you’d like to host a showing or know of a suitable space or gallery, please reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can explore the online exhibit here.
