Visual Momentum: Climate Change – Water to Dust with Mette Lampcov
Podcast: Download (Duration: 35:47 — 41.0MB)In this interview, I sit down for an important chat about climate change. Mette Lampcov about her project Water to Dust. Mette is one photographer who has made it her mission to document some of the effects of global warming, and some of its side effects.
Some of the side effects of climate change discussed are the recent fires in California, safety when shooting, how Mette approaches situations where she's inexplicably unwanted, (because of the polarizing topic) and more. Mette shoots with Fujifilm cameras as well as Canon.
Mette has found a system and workflow that works for her while allowing her to tell some of the most important issues facing people who inhabit planet Earth.
This interview is part of a collaboration between Fujifilm, The Phoblographer and This Week in Photo called Visual Momentum. For the companion written article, head over to ThePhoblographer.com.
