Climate & photography: a commitment for our times
For the fi fth year running, La Gacilly Photo Festival and Fisheye Magazine are joining forces to promote young humanist and environmental photographers through a call for entries to its competition, which trains the spotlight on a new generation of photographers.
All over the world, young people with unprecedented environmental knowledge are coming together in large movements, such as Youth for Climate. Many people are changing their lifestyles to promote self-sufficiency, sharing, and reduced consumption in an effort to minimize their ecological impact. Others are opting for activism and militancy, blocking sites that generate serious pollution or protesting against projects that destroy flora and fauna. Meanwhile, for some, the environment is a daily struggle for the survival of a territory or culture.
Photography has a role to play in this combat, too. Taking either a visual-artistic, documentary or photojournalistic approach, it is this commitment that we hope to see in our call for entries.
