Admission: FREE

Daniel Beltra won in 2009 the Prince's Rainforests Project Award (PRP). The PRP commissioned Daniel to photograph for a month each rainforests in the Brazilian Amazon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Indonesia. The photos that Daniel produced during this time, along with some from his archive from previous years, were edited together to produce a book, online multimedia presentations, pamphlets and print exhibitions around the world. These various forms of media were aimed to help people make the connection between tropical deforestation and global warming and how their own consumption habits impact these processes.

Tropical deforestation is responsible for a fifth of the world's carbon emissions. The economic forces of logging, mining and agricultural development destroy nearly 60 million square miles of virgin rainforests every year. Native plants are made extinct before they are ever documented and indigenous peoples find their land ever more encroached upon. Stopping, or at least slowing, tropical deforestation will mitigate the impact that global warming is already having on the planet. Daniel hopes that the photos he produced for the PRP will help the public understand the environmental consequences of tropical deforestation.

Daniel Beltrá is a conservation photographer based in Seattle. Originally from Madrid, Daniel began shooting for Greenpeace in 1990. His work has been recognized by the World Press Photo awards, the Pictures of the Year International and the National Press Photographers Association.

Iris Nights Lecture Series - Facing Water Crisis

Apr 08 2010

Iris Nights Lecture Series - Facing Water Crisis

Annenberg Space for Photography - 2000 Ave of the Stars Los Angeles, CA 90067-4700

Admission: FREE

This project is about the crises that currently surround the vital yet destructive presence, crippling absence and strategic value of water worldwide.

Independent photographer, Balazs Gardi works to capture stories about marginalized communities in desperate situations. He spends time with people struck by the harshest conditions as events unfold in overpopulated slums, refugee camps, natural disasters, war zones, and other crisis areas, which are often under represented in the mainstream media.

Gardi believes that only honest attention wins the trust and reaches the real emotions and personal stories of people entangled in such life threatening situations. He uses this approach to identify early symptoms of catastrophes before they develop into sensational news stories or gain widespread attention.

Gardi spent two years following how the Roma (gypsy) minorities trying to deal with their growing poverty, declining social status and appalling living conditions in a dozen Eastern European countries. He has traveled regularly to Afghanistan and Pakistan to document life in a region in a state of insecurity and a downward spiral that is dragging these countries back to open warfare.

In recent years, his attention has gradually turned to reporting the local harbingers of the global water crisis. This has evolved into “Facing Water Crisis”, his most ambitious photography project to date. It features an expanding series of individual stories about the most life-threatening environmental crisis mankind has ever faced, covering numerous heavily affected regions around the world.
