Nine photographs from The Last Stand appear today in this exhibition at the Nature Museum in Leeuwarden. The Noorderlicht Photography Festival is curating a group of projects on the ecosystem, with the umbrella title ‘Guardians’. The first in the series Plastic: Fossil to Fossil opened in April with work from, among others, Mandy Barker and Chris Jordan.
“The exhibition series GUARDIANS examines the influence of humans on the biodiversity that surrounds us. This second part looks at what we extract from nature. With both plants and animals, the preservation of biodiversity is under pressure. Chemical contamination is causing the seedbed for flora and fauna to disappear. Economic exploitation of the land is resulting in deforestation. These and other causes mean that an untouched natural ecosystem is now nowhere to be found. This is exposed in the exhibition BEES ’n TREES by way of two specific species: bees and trees.”
