For several years, Kadir van Lohuizen has explored the global consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change through his photography. He has travelled to Kiribati, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh, Panama, the United Kingdom and the United States, not only looking at affected or potentially affected areas, but also places that people will likely have to relocate to as a result. The human costs of these movements will be dramatic, but the biggest question remains: where will we go?
This exhibition showcases a series of photographs that highlights both the immense complexities of in-island and inter-island/country movement, and the human rights implications involved in such displacements.
Kadir van Lohuizen has worked in many conflict areas in Africa such as Angola, Sierra Leone and Liberia, and is well known for his long-term projects on the seven rivers of the world, the diamond industry, the rising sea level and migration in the Americas. He has received numerous prizes and awards in photojournalism, and is also the co-founder of international photo agency and foundation NOOR.
