Earth Shot

Harvey Milk Photo Center is proud to present Earthshot, a visual survey of the current environmental crisis. Earthshot takes its name from the common expression “moonshot” which refers to a high-risk venture or undertaking. The photographers, curator, and producers for the show feel that the need to reverse environmental decline represents a moonshot. Natural systems are imperiled worldwide, with climate change and other anthropogenic causes driving most of these changes.

Eartshot is a collaboration between the Planning and Conservation League, Prime Collective, and the show’s curator and producers.

The Planning and Conservation League was founded in 1965 and lobbies for sound land use, planning, and environmental protection in California.

Prime Collective is a global collective of visual storytellers dedicated to describing the human experience with empathy and artistry.

The following photographers are members of Prime Collective:

Luján Agusti
Dominic Bacco II
Melanie Burford
Brendan Hoffman
Pete Muller
Katie Orlinsky
Max Whittaker

Curator: Liza Faktor. Liza is a photographer, curator, and producer.
Producers: Mike Aviña, Ken Walton and Dave Christensen
