The photographs and voices included in We See The Change: The Human Cost of a Warming Climate provide a glimpse into the lives of millions living along the Mekong River who are impacted by climate change - a force that has been compounded by the construction of numerous large-scale hydropower dams.
Collectively, their stories and perspectives illuminate two fundamental truths. First, that the world's poorest and most vulnerable individuals - those who have contributed the least to climate change - have been the first to be thrust onto its front lines. And secondly, the all life on Earth is interconnected. By examining the overlap of these two truths, the detached abstraction of climate change is given a human face.
James is a major in Environmental Sciences and Policy at Duke University (Class of 2020) and pursuing his Certificate in Documentary Studies from the Center For Documentary Studies at Duke University.
