Photographers and photojournalists have kept us on the edge of our seats for decades as the climate emergency has evolved from “warming” to “crisis” to “boiling point”. In this visual guest lecture, award-winning photographer and documentary filmmaker Marina Dodis will talk us through some of the iconic imagery of the climate emergency so far, with a candid look at their backstory.
Marina Dodis is a documentary filmmaker with an extensive background in commercial and editorial photography. She has made or contributed to a dozen short films. She has travelled to over 20 countries, immersing herself in diverse cultures and social justice issues.
Join us for a fascinating talk as we discover who is in the picture, who isn’t, and why any of this matters.
This lecture is presented by UBC Sustainability Hub, Campus + Community Planning, SALA, and Emeritus College Photo Group.
Climate Emergency Week seeks to convene and energize communities of climate action at UBC. Join our events, workshops and activities from February 12 to 16, and take collective action for justice, people, and the planet.
