Stephen Dupont: Are We Dead Yet?

Is it too late? Are We Dead Yet? Stephen Dupont captures the environmental, social, and economic costs of climate change in 21 visually striking photographs imbued with Nature’s colour palette in the aftermath of Her destruction across several years and locations in Australia. Images show ecological events that left ravaged earth and devastated communities in their wake: the solitary figure swimming in the ocean during a dust storm to a flooded football ground or the charred bushland destroyed by fire and the parched ground of drought-stricken regions.
