Ashley Cooper is an environmental photographer who has spent the past 13 years visiting every continent on the globe to visually document the effects of global warming. What’s unique about Ashley’s approach is that he doesn’t just document physical changes of the world. The medium of photography allows him to capture the sociological impacts of global warming. His work highlights the impact of global warming on a human scale and also showcases cutting-edge innovation of environmentally friendly technology.

I spoke to Ashely about his journey and the lasting impressions his global tour has given him. Join our discussion to learn about how the Inuit’s of the Arctic are fighting back; how innovators of India have developed ‘green’ technology and to learn about the damage global warming has caused by an individual with first-hand experience.
