Climate Words, Inc.
About the Project
Climate Words is a photographic work with a focus on words that have emerged with the Climate Justice movement. Some are positive, they shed light on some of the barriers we have overcome. And others are negative, born from some brick walls that stand in our way. The movement is diverse. These words and images reflect its intersectionality. The movement is layered. The project invites you into an interconnected series of words in the English language that collectively grow and veer around the movement. The collection of images and words is updated regularly.
