Rising sea levels affect us all. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Rising Tide presents works by Dutch documentary photographer Kadir van Lohuizen that illustrate the dramatic consequences of the climate crisis across the world through photographs, video, drone images, and sound. Experience the effects of rising sea levels in Greenland, Bangladesh, Papua-New Guinea, Kiribati, Fiji, the Netherlands, the U.K., Marshall Islands, Jakarta, Panama, Miami, and our own neighborhoods here in New York.
