This photo series by Danish award-winning freelance photojournalist & documentary filmmaker Anders Birch documents the impacts of sea-level rise and flooding in Bangladesh. This series was chosen because it focuses on the human story of this climate impact. It consistently uses a human subject to provide scale and draw the audience into the story. For example, the image of a woman cooking in her flooded house drives home the real cost of climate change for individuals and communities in a clear way.
WHAT IT SHOWS: Salam Sarwan's house was destroyed when the cyclone hit the village. Today he has lost everything.
