The Deluge: On the human costs of rising sea levels
April 16, 8:00 am - June 30, 8:00 pm
The Forum and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism are pleased to present The Deluge: On the human costs of rising sea levels, an exhibit of photographs by photojournalist and Global Visiting Fellow, Kadir van Lohuizen / NOOR. The installation, which debuted at The Forum on Friday, April 16, just ahead of Earth Day, features fifteen photographs illustrating the consequences of climate change in communities across the globe.
The images, on display in New York City for the first time, will be on view in the windows of The Forum’s ground-floor Atrium through this June. While The Forum building itself is currently closed due to the pandemic, this view-from-the-street display allows for a safe, outdoor viewing experience for all.
The Forum installation coincides with an exhibit of van Lohuizen’s work on view at the Museum of the City of New York. Rising Tide: Visualizing the Human Costs of the Climate Crisis, features photographs, video, drone images, and sound captured by van Lohuizen. Visitors to the exhibit will experience the effects of rising sea levels in Greenland, Bangladesh, Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, Fiji, Amsterdam, Panama, Miami, and our own neighborhoods here in New York City.
