Disturbed Ecologies

Photography, Geopolitics, and the Northern Landscape in the Era of Environmental Crisis

In the context of an environmental crisis, photography and its related practices can be part of an emancipatory project, challenging techno-utopian solutions and envisioning alternative possibilities for sustaining life on this planet. This anthology critically addresses the geopolitics of environmental devastation from the perspective of photographers, artists, curators and theorists. The contributors engage with recent debates about the Anthropocene and the need to identify the socioeconomic and political causes of climate change. The essays question the validity of images within which ecological crisis is seen as the consequence of undifferentiated human activity.
