Exhibits & Commissions:

    Climate Change in Our World
"Climate Change in Our World," is an exhibit of large-scale color photographs by Gary Braasch, who has been documenting climate change and its solutions for a decade. These photographs, which range in size up to 5 feet, are from the book "Earth Under Fire," published in 2007. The exhibit opens at the American Association for the Advancement of Science HQ Atrium in Washington DC on November 10, 2009. A companion exhibit for kids, parents and school groups, "How We Know About Our Changing Climate," will highlight how scientists learn about climate change and include kids taking action, in the films "Young Voices on Climate Change." The exhibit will draw attention to the reality of climate change in Washington DC leading up to the Copenhagen international climate negotiations.

    Polar Thaw
NRDC Coverage and Images
"Polar Thaw" is a 30-print exhibit of photographs from locations of Arctic and Antarctic climate warming. It opened spring 2000 at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington DC. It has also been exhibited at the Science Museum of Minnesota, and at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago during fall 2003. This exhibit, with detailed, informative captions, is available for display in museums, science centers, public libraries, and other funded venues.

    United Nations Stamps
The office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations has requested the issuance of a personalized stamp event sheet to commemorate the Climate Change Summit forum, which was held during the United Nations General Assembly on September 22, 2009. The stamps feature Gary Braasch's photographs. The Secretary General signed the stamp package, saying "This year we have an unprecedented opportunity to tackle the climate crisis. I urge the world's governments to seal a deal on a climate change agreement in Copenhagen this December. It must be ambitious, fair and effective in reducing emissions while assisting countries as they adapt to the inevitable effects of climate change."


    How We Know What We Know
"How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate: Scientists and Kids Explore Global Warming" is a non-scary, action-oriented, and inspiring look at how scientists do their work, what they are discovering about global warming, and how kids are already learning about this through Citizen Science. Kids can make a difference! By Lynne Cherry and Gary Braasch

    Earth Under Fire
"Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World" is a comprehensive look at the world wide effects of climate change. In dramatic photographs, maps and quotes from world climate science leaders, this one-of-a-kind book shows how the earth is being changed right now.


    World View of Global Warming
"World View of Global Warming," which began ten years ago in Antarctica, is the only dedicated climate change science and response documentation project independently undertaken by a photojournalist. It is funded by donations, grants, image and book sales and assignments.
