Markku Lahdesmaki Is Heating Up Vanity Fair

Finnish photographer Markku Lahdesmaki may have grown up in a place known for it’s cold weather, but now he’s bringing the heat to Vanity Fair. Lahdesmaki’s photos are front and center of a new piece in this August’s issue. “How Extreme Heat Could Leave Swaths Of The Planet Uninhabitable” focuses on extreme heat-waves in Death Valley and Kuwait and discusses how they could spell disaster for the future of our planet.

AtEdge Director of Photography, Susan Baraz, Curates Photo Exhibition for Mayors Summit C40 on Climate Change in Mexico City

Work from several AtEdge photographers, including Matthew TurleyAndy Anderson & Simon Harsent, will be featured in the Addressing Climate Change exhibition which opens today at the sixth biennial C40 Mayors Summit in Mexico City. The Mayors Summit will serve as a forum to highlight how cities across the globe are continuing to take local action to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change.

This exhibition was curated by our very own Susan Baraz (AtEdge Director of Photography & Co-Chair of the Lucie Awards), along with Lucie Chair Hossein Farmani.

The striking images of our planet in crisis are crucial to promoting awareness of a disaster that affects us all. Originally created for the historic COP21 climate negotiations in Paris, the exhibition proves that photography in the hands of great artists can transmit a visual message that can make an impact like no other medium. It was so well received in Paris that it was brought to Mexico City to be on display through January 11, 2017. Hundreds  of mayors, plus leading urban and sustainability experts from around the world, will view the exhibit during the three-day Mayors Summit (November 30 – December 2) as well as thousands of Mexico City dwellers and tourists alike. These photographs are on large billboards stretching the entire length of the walking path at the entrance of the park. It has already imparted it’s powerful, undeniable message as a call to action.

We applaud the wonderful photographers dedicated to this cause, as well as Susan and Hossein for putting it all together.

Please visit the Lucie Foundation’s website to view a gallery of the works on display.

This project begins with images of the massive icebergs as they enter Greenland’s Disco Bay from the Ilulissat Icefjord; it ends with the icebergs off the East Coast of Newfoundland, by which time they have travelled hundreds of miles, and have been so battered and broken down that they are little more than ghosts of what they once were.
