COAL +ICE presents the work of many photographers, from different parts of the world and from different moments in time. In my design, the photographs retain their relative autonomy as objects in the space. The motivation of the photographers for creating the works may have been different, but I have tried to make them speak to each other and to draw the visitor into this conversation. It is an important conversation - one that, in the end, will affect all of us.
