Eroding Edges

​Eroding Edges explores the changing lives and identities of American communities living at the forefront of climate change. Using a combined approach of photography, film, academic research and advocacy, the project moves beyond the sensationalism of the tragedy and towards stories of hope.

NASA research predicts that sea level rise will displace between 4 and 13 million Americans from their homes by the end of this century. Globally, nearly a billion people are threatened. For some, the impacts of a warming world are already underway.

​Eroding Edges explores the changing lives and identities of American communities living at the forefront of climate change. Using a combined approach of photography, film, academic research and advocacy, the project focuses beyond the sensationalism of the tragedy and towards stories of hope and heroism for those who are working to protect their homes and cultural heritage.

By telling these stores we hope to help share and advocate for locally created solutions for communities in need of adaptation or relocation away from our country's most vulnerable coastlines.
