At the Global Exchange summit at New York's Lincoln Center last Friday a new art-science collaboration was announced between photojournalist Justin Guariglia and NASA. 

Guariglia will work with geoscientists at NASA to “figure out fresh ways to present the effects of climate change to the public.” He has already been embedded on a NASA mission to Greenland where he photographed rapidly changing land and sea ice. Funded by private grants, he'll now be on additional low-altitude flights as part of NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) mission through 2020.

The mission's lead scientist Josh Willis says art “seems like the most powerful way to help people understand just how radically we are reshaping Earth’s climate.”

An exhibition of Guariglia's work, Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene will be premiering at the Norton Museum of Art on September 5, 2017.
