Ed Kashi (VII) has been an avid contributor to the the project of #EveryDayClimateChange. #EveryDayClimateChange is an exhibition and is associated with the Instagram feed, @everydayclimatechange. This feed has received a great deal of press and support on Instagram and has 20.3k followers. @everydayclimatechange concerns the very serious and relevant issue of climate change that as stated on this social media site “is Real!”
Kashi has been covering climate change in various locations including Madagascar, Nigeria, South Africa, Brazil, California, along with other areas as well . This issue is global, constant, and has various causes. For example, deforestation has been rampant in California. As more and more trees are cut down, the effects of global climate change will be ever more apparent and impactful for people, other organisms, and environments all over the world. He has also documented the drought that is plaguing California and how its influence and burden on the farmers there is increasing as the fourth year of the drought ensues. These cases are only a few instances where everyday climate change can be seen.
As this widespread problem is being photographically narrated by Kashi, #EverydayClimateChange will be an exhibition that encompasses the photographs that Kashi and other photographers have been making to present the visual evidence of the climate change happening in the here and now. These photographers are from all over the world, and through their work spanning 7 continents, they are able to relay various perspectives on this very pressing matter . The event, curated by James Whitlow Delano and Matilde Gattoni will occur at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei in Milan, Italy on July 28th, 2015.
