About the Photographer

three people standing together on a boat smilingBarbara Dombrowski is an renowned German photographer and visual artist who dedicates her work to places affected by climate change. ​She is focusing on relevant and specific climate localities and their population living between established tradition and global modernity. Her goal, she said, is not to portray catastrophe, but instead to “create a connection” between the viewer and those portrayed in the images, many of whom are experiencing climate disruption and/or fighting for climate protection in their neighborhoods.
