This project involves a series of maps of the world that show the environmental challenges we face today – among them Deforestation, Desertification, Oil Spills, Retreating Glaciers, and Light Pollution – and how they affect the world at large. Inspired by two photographs taken of Earth from space, “Earthrise” (1968) and “The Blue Marble” (1972), which are considered two of the most influential environmental photos ever taken and are noted for ushering in the environmental movement, we hope to once again call attention to the problems the world is facing. These issues are largely overlooked as they may seem far removed from our daily lives, but our hope is to make people more aware of the seriousness of the challenges we as a society face together.
