It’s been a long, tough and exciting journey for Danish photojournalist Jonathan Bjerg Moeller who has spent the past eight months in Bangladesh.
Jonathan’s project called “Bangladesh” is a huge multimedia project that will consist of five chapters and it is scheduled to be published in late October / early November 2009 – just before the Copenhagen Climate Summit is due to take place.
“The weather is changing in Bangladesh and the forecast is grim. Weather patterns are becoming more unstable and erratic, and natural disasters are growing more frequent.
The effects of climate change are already being felt and coupled with poverty and overpopulation millions of people are at risk.The western lifestyle comes with a price, and is paid for by the poorest people in the world.
The average person here emits only a fraction of the carbon dioxide emitted by an American or European, yet Bangladesh will be one of the countries hardest hit by climate change.
Five short multimedia documentaries are the result of an eight-month journey to understand how these changes are already affecting the lives of ordinary people in one of the most densely populated countries in the world.”
Jonathan has photographed, filmed and produced all stories related to this project on his own. Bombay Flying Club has been commissioned to design and program the complete flashsite. See the trailer HERE
