About the Photo Exhibit:
This new photo exhibit by Orin Langelle premiered in Copenhagen, Denmark during the UN Climate Convention in December 2009. The exhibit’s theme is climate change and the possibility of human extinction. Langelle’s photographs reveal that time and existence are fleeting. This visual warning and wake-up call confronts the viewer with a thought provoking portrayal of the ephemeral nature of life. Orin Langelle trained as a photojournalist at the International Center of Photography. This show is a departure from usual his documentary work.
