This exhibition of work, presented by the Pulitzer Center and Diversify Photo, explores the intersections of erasure, injustice, and resilience in the face of climate change’s relentless advance. These photographs take us to climate-affected communities in the sunny hills of Southern California, fading coastlines in Baja Sur, Mexico, and melting ice caps above Cusco, Peru.

The Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant, which supports visual storytelling by photojournalists from historically underrepresented backgrounds in the media, supported the three featured projects.

    Sofia Aldinio is an Argentine-American documentary photographer and multimedia storyteller. She is currently based between Portland, Maine, and Baja California, Mexico.
