Documenting Natural Resources and Climate Change: Photography as a Tool for Education and Activating Change

Location: Photoville Pavilion

Date: Saturday, September 19th

Time: 2:15PM-3:15PM

Presented by: VSCO

Featuring: Janos Pasztor (Moderator), Mustafah Abdulaziz, James Whitlow Delano


As the world faces global climatic change, photographers are using photography to tell stories and mobilize action. It is easy to ignore the magnitude of environmental impacts and climate change when people cannot see them on a daily basis. Digital channels and social media play an important role in bringing otherwise distant issues to the forefront. Photographers can now act as social change agents and visual storytellers, capturing the relationship between humans and natural resources in an evocative way that educates and promotes change from the ground up.

In effort to create direct dialogue between journalists and policy makers, photographers Mustafah Abdulaziz and James Whitlow Delano will discuss their ongoing photography projects on water and climate change with moderator, Janos Pasztor, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Climate Change. Each photographer will present their projects before engaging in a timely discussion around photography as a means for shifting the narrative on climate change, environmental solutions as well as individual and collective action.

Photography Restaged

Location: Photoville Pavilion

Date: Saturday September 19th

Time: 1:00PM-2:00PM

Featuring: Saul Ostrow (Moderator), Rose DeSiano, Lori Nix, and Lorie Novak

Artist Lori Nix, Lorie Novak and Rose DeSiano talk with critic and curator Saul Ostrow about contemporary photographers practices of “Re-Staging”. By employing handmade miniatures, reenacted theatrics and, elaborately staged room installations these three artists draw attention to the uncanny state of the real world.

Since 1999, Lorie Novak has been analyzing New York Times images appearing “above the fold”, Novak has noticed history repeating itself in the form of recurring image tropes. Carefully, she physically sorts, reorganizes and re-stages these newspapers in front of the lens. By re-photographing them in their new state, she questions how our world-views are heavily mediated through a very limited range of reoccurring photographic messages.

Hyper aware of these exact same tropes, Rose photographs 20th-century war reenactments carefully considering the compositions and lens optics originally implemented during the historic battles. Back in her studio, DeSiano splices and reorganizes them into realistic singular compositions as a nod to these motifs and an examination of how we visually represent our own histories.

As a child in the rural Midwest Lori Nix was witness to countless natural disasters. Now living in New York, Nix carefully observes the ever-changing urbanscape. Pulling from both her real world observations and photographic tropes, she constructs intricate table top environments in front of the lens, which draw attention to the absurdities of life.

While this panel does not require advance registration, seating in the Photoville Pavilion is first come first served so we recommend you arrive promptly.
