The Climate Institute is currently showcasing the work of critically acclaimed photographer, Michael Hall, in an extraordinary exhibition titled The Story of Our Planet Unfolds, at Customs House in Sydney until 5 September. The exhibition features a body of work that illustrates human impacts and responses from around the world to the challenge of climate change.

Two years ago, the Climate Institute awarded critically acclaimed photographer Michael Hall its first Creative Fellowship to assist him on his long-term project to document human civilisation's response to one of our greatest challenges. The exhibit showcases his work putting a human face to the risks and opportunities of climate change. The Nelson Meers Foundation, together with Michael and Silvia Kantor, is delighted to be supporting the Fellowship.
