Leica photographer Kai Löffelbein has received a nomination for this year's Greenpeace Photo Award. His project 'Death Metals – Mining for the First World' addresses how the raw materials for our electronics industry are sourced, illustrating the ecological and social effects of the methods used.
Greenpeace Photo Award
Earlier this year, Greenpeace Switzerland and Germany joined up with GEO magazine to announce the Greenpeace Photo Award 2014. More than 100 photographers submitted their series addressing environmental themes. Eight entries were chosen by an international jury (in addition, the contest also includes an Audience Award). The winner stands to receive 8,000 euros in order to create an expansive project on their suggested theme.
