Incredible photos and the stories behind them. 

The disastrous impact of global warming is on display for all to see at a new exhibition in Bangkok. 

A collaboration between Lucie Foundation and The Royal Photographic Society of Thailand (RSPT), Beyond The Air We Breathe: Addressing Climate Change gathers striking nature and environmental images by 80 renowned international photographers.

Among those to feature are world-famous photojournalist Steve McCurry and his iconic "Camels and Oil Fire" photo; photographer, polar explorer and activist Sebastian Copeland; esteemed documentary photographer Colin Finlay; and James Nachtwey, known for his stark portrayals of genocide, disease and starvation. Thailand's Nat Sumanatemeya will also contribute his stunning underwater photographs.

On top of presenting the arctic landscapes and wildlife he’s captured, including heartbreaking shots of a starving polar bear, Copeland will give an artist's talk (Jun 28, 5-6pm) at the 5th-floor auditorium. Tickets start at B200 for members of RSPT and students and B500 for general publc from rpst.or.th.
