Exhibition Launch: Land is Life, a free photographic exhibition by Oxfam Australia

Award winning photographer Rodney Dekker travelled with Oxfam to the Pacific Islands nations of Tuvalu and Kiribati, recording images and interviews with people whose daily lives and livelihoods are being affected by climate change.  This striking series of images shows aspects of daily life and culture, the impact of rising sea levels on local food crops and fresh water supplies and how people are adapting to climate change. The photos also tell of a spirit of determination and innovation as they prepare for their futures.

Additional to the photographs, we will be exhibiting climate change related art created by local artists. There will also be live music and finger food at the event. The exhibition will be officially launched by Federal Member for Kooyong, Josh Frydenberg.  Following the launch event, Land is Life will be held at Kew Library from Monday 5th September to Wednesday 5th October.
