Rising Sea Levels Documented in ‘Climate: The 360° Exhibition’- 30 Images from Ljubljana Exhibit

182

Written by:

I mentioned the opening of a National Geographic exhibit here in Ljubljana three days ago, but there was also another opening that day just half a dozen blocks away where ‘Climate: The 360° Exhibition’ took pride of place on the the Slovenian capital’s central Congress Square.

Unlike the national parks exhibit in Tivoli Park, which focuses on the natural beauty of protected areas and the need to preserve them, ‘Climate: The 360° Exhibition’ underscores the profound sense of urgency caused by rapidly rising sea levels in places where people, millions of them, actually live.

Climate The 360 Exhibition - Climat L'Expo a 360 in Ljubljana 02

Consisting of images from nine countries, its impact packs a wallop, thanks to Dutch photographer Kadir van Lohuizen whose 25 powerful photos make up the bulk of the show.

Van Lohuizen’s put together an impressive body of work over the course of his thirty year career, but it’s these images, many which are included in his book “Where Will We Go” which documents the people displaced by the rising oceans, that I’m most familiar with, given how they intersect with the issues facing climate refugees, a topic I’m especially interested in.

Photo Exhibit ‘National Parks: Taking Care of Nature’ Opens in Ljubljana

273

Written by:

“National Parks: Taking Care of Nature”, a photo exhibition celebrating the national parks of the US and Slovenia through images taken by National Geographic photographers, opened yesterday in the Slovenian capital.

Here are 18 images from the opening and the exhibit, enough to give you an idea without me pushing the bounds of copyright. 🙂

Nearly 100 images –half depicting scenes from national parks in the U.S. and half taken in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park– line the Jakopič Promenade in Ljubljana’s sprawling central Tivoli park, a fitting setting for the theme. It’s definitely my favorite exhibit space in Ljubljana.

Hello & Welcome!

I'm Bob Ramsak, a reporter, photographer and blogger driven by a lust for travel, art, culture and justice. I have a goal to visit all 195 countries recognized by the UN and then open a small cafe in a quiet seaside setting.

Piran Café is that destination.

I roam often but Piran Café is not a typical travel blog. Kicking since 2006, it's my notebook, a collection of experiences, moments and vignettes, both long-form and short, connected and propelled by those primary passions and published here to inform, inspire, entertain and engage.

I'm based between Cleveland, Ohio, USA and Ljubljana, Slovenia, a city set in the heart of Europe and whose name few can pronounce.

Thanks for visiting. Hope to see you tomorrow, too.
