NorthSouthEastWest: A 360° View of Climate Change
January 9, 2014
by Magnum Photographers
From 2005:

Climate change affects every corner of the planet and every aspect of peoples' lives. As the populations increase and resources become more scarce, the impact of the environment will become more extreme. "NorthSouthEastWest: a 360° View of Climate Change" is a spectacular and thought-provoking book showing both the impact of climate change on today's planet and the innovative solutions being taken to this pressing global concern. This book tells the story of icecaps, mega-cities, rice fields, islands, forests, and much more. It deals with the threats that millions face to their food supplies, fresh water, culture, and even the existence of their countries. Yet it also deals with a range of solutions that may go some way towards meeting the challenges of these immanent crises. Ten leading Magnum photographers - Ian Berry, Alex Webb, Alex Majoli, Chris Steele-Perkins, Harry Gruyaert, Nikos Economopoulos, Donovan Wylie, Bruce Gilden, Constantine Manos and Chien-Chi Chang - have traveled to ten globally critical regions to experience climate change and to document what is happening to nature, human rights, economics, technology, innovation and our health.
