Trouble in Paradise – Climate Change in the Pacific
The Turner Centre is excited to announce the opening of Trouble in Paradise – Climate Change in the Pacific on Thursday 2 November, a photographic exhibition in partnership with the British High Commission, the British Council New Zealand and the Pacific and made possible by the Bay of Islands Whangaroa Community Board.
Trouble in Paradise – Climate Change in the Pacific features the winning entries from the UK’s Pacific Climate Photography Competition, which received more than 300 submissions documenting the effects of the climate crisis.
Photographers paint a stark picture of the rising sea levels, tropical cyclones and frequent floods experienced by those living in the Pacific. The imagery is arresting. Images of bleached corals in Fiji and houses submerged in water in Samoa will be among those on display, giving visitors a first-hand look at the impacts climate change has on communities and livelihoods.
The 60 winning photos on display were entered under the categories of Marine, Land, People, Youth and Junior. Photographers from as young as eight paint a stark picture of the rising sea levels, cyclones and floods experienced by those living in the South Pacific.
