Photography and the Environment

Share:

With the exhibition ‘Mining Photography. The Ecological Footprint of Image Production’, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (MK&G) in Hamburg explores the history of key resources used in photography – addressing both their extraction and disposal within the context of climate change. Historical photographs and contemporary artistic positions – complemented by interviews with restorers, geologists and climate researchers – tell the story of photography as a field of industrial production that is deeply intertwined with the man-made changes to our natural environment.

The showcase, which can be viewed until October 31, 2022, shines a new light on the role and impact of photography – not just as a documentary tool used to report on the effects of climate change, but also in terms of the medium’s own ideological and material implications. The participating photographers include Ignacio Acosta, Lisa Barnard, students of the Digital Graphics course at the HFBK University of Fine Arts (Mari Lebanidze, Cleo Miao, Leon Schwer and Marco Wesche), Susanne Kriemannm, Lisa Rave, Alison Rossiter, Robert Smithson, and Tobias Zielony, a.o.
