About

            Images From a Warming Planet

I have spent the last thirteen years travelling to every continent on the planet to document the impacts of climate change and in that time have probably witnessed more of its impacts than anyone else. What I have seen is truly shocking. I passionately believe that climate change is the biggest threat that humanity has ever faced. My book, Images From a Warming Planet, is a wakeup call to show how climate change is already impacting all around the world. This high quality art photographic book will include over 500 images, from every continent. The cloth bound hard back book will be blind de-bossed with full colour interior and dust jacket with a foreword by Jonathon Porritt.

Images from a Warming Planet is an art photographic book that comes from the heart. The  photographic book documents the causes of climate change. How these changes are impacting peoples, landscapes and biodiversity around the planet. Finally what we can do to mitigate the worst excesses of climate change and prevent it from happening. I truly believe that this book will play a real and significant role in alerting people to the dangers posed and motivate action. Some of the images in the book are shocking, but I have always strived to create original, dramatic and stunning images, which collectively lends a high end art photographic feel to the book.

If the appeal exceeds its target, I will be able to extend the print run of the book from its current 3,000 run and reach a wider audience.

Risks and challenges

All the images for the book are ready to go. The initial art design work for the book has been completed. All that remains is for the designer to prepare all the artwork to print ready and then it can go straight off to the print house. To this extent, I see very little in the way of challenges, once the money has been raised.
