Coal+Ice is presented by Asia Society at Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing.

Exhibition dates: Saturday, September 24 to Monday, November 28, 2011

Coal + Ice is a documentary photography exhibition featuring the work of 30 photographers from China, the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Norway, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom, whose work, brought together here, visually narrates the hidden chain of actions triggered by mankind’s use of coal.

This photographic arc moves from deep within the coal mines to the glaciers of the greater Himalaya where greenhouse gasses are warming the high altitude climate. As these mighty glaciers melt at an accelerated pace, the great rivers of Asia that flow from the Tibetan Plateau into the oceans are disturbed, and the lives of billions of people downstream are disrupted.

Participating photographers: Alfredo D’Amato, George Mallory, Robert Wallis, Bruce Davidson, Gleb Kosorukov, Song Chao, Builder Levy, Ian Teh, Stuart Franklin, Cameron Davidson, Jimmy Chin, Thomas Hoepker, Clifford Ross, Jonas Bendikson, Vittorio Sella, Daniel Shea, Lewis Hine, W. Eugene Smith, David Breashears, Major Edward O. Wheeler, Wang Mianli, David Hurn, Nadav Kander, Wu Qi, David Seymour, Niu Guozheng, Yang Junpo, Yang Shaobin, Geng Yunsheng, Robert Capa and Yu Haibo
