Book - Higher Ground
Carl De Keyzer
In Moments Before the Flood, Carl De Keyzer portrayed a Europe on the cusp of drowning, flooded due to climate change. In Higher Ground, the flood has already passed. His images show people that have fled to the high mountains, depicting a fictional world of tomorrow. A large portion of the work is irony, but it bears an uncomfortably close semblance to scientific predictions of the future.

Higher Ground explores what the world might look like if the sea level would rise 3 to 4 metres, as scientists predict today for 2050, thus encouraging the reader to think about the impact of climate change....
