Rising Tide


The Rockaways in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Back to Exhibitions

Rising sea levels affect us all. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Rising Tide presents works by Dutch documentary photographer Kadir van Lohuizen that illustrate the dramatic consequences of the climate crisis across the world through photographs, video, drone images, and sound. Experience the effects of rising sea levels in Greenland, Bangladesh, Papua-New Guinea, Kiribati, Fiji, the Netherlands, the U.K., Marshall Islands, Jakarta, Panama, Miami, and our own neighborhoods here in New York.

With houses built right on the coastline, the Rockaways were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and are still vulnerable more than five years later. Image by Kadir van Lohuizen, 2018. © Kadir van Lohuizen / NOOR
