This exhibition consists of large-scale photographs by New Mexico photographer Subhankar Banerjee. Banerjee’s current project began in 2000 as a study of the ecological and cultural diversity of the Artic National Wildlife Refuge in all four seasons. His vision has since evolved into a visual exploration of the Arctic ’s connection to larger global issues such as resource wars, climate change, toxic migration, and human rights struggles of the indigenous northern communities.

Subhankar Banerjee is an Indian born American photographer, writer, environmental educator, and founder of ClimateStoryTellers.org. Through his ongoing project LAND AS HOME he works to raise awareness about issues that threaten the health and well-being of our planet. Over the past decade he has been a leading international voice on issues of arctic conservation, indigenous human rights, and climate change. More recently he has also been focusing on global forest deaths from climate change. His photographs and writing have reached tens of millions of people around the world and he continues to give lectures on issues of climate change, resource development, biological diversity, human rights, and eco-cultural sustainability.
