Step into the Frame

Both Magnum Foundation and #Dysturb believe deeply in making photography accessible. To push the #reframeclimate project beyond Paris and extend the possibility for engagement to a global audience, a digital rendering of the installation process was produced by students and residents at the Interactive Telecommunications Program NYU Tisch in the form of an embeddable 3D photogrammetry experience. Viewers are now able to navigate a selection of the pasting sites, watch the actual pasting process, and hear the audio component. This immersive experience memorializes the temporary lives of these pastings and upholds the unique physicality of discovering them in the street.

During COP21, we collaborated with #Dysturb to #reframeclimate. Together, we curated and pasted large-scale, black-and-white documentary photographs throughout the city of Paris. Come daylight, passersby were confronted with compelling work investigating climate related issues and solutions, and challenging the notions of what climate change imagery looks like.

We invited researchers from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies to draw from their work on climate resilience, environmental justice, and urban governance, and to distill their findings. In unison with the research, we developed an SMS interaction sponsored by Twilio.org to leverage the voices of photographers — those with their eyes constantly on our world.
