Ξ June 25th, 2007 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Arts, Photography |





    Indian born artist-educator-activist Subhankar Banerjee uses photography to raise awareness about issues that threaten the health and well-being of our planet. Since 2001 he has focused all his efforts on indigenous human rights and land conservation issues in the American Arctic. His photographic work from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge was instrumental in the United States Congress to defeat oil drilling legislation and preserve this ecological treasure both for wildlife and for the indigenous human cultures, the Gwich'in and the Inupiat communities. His Arctic photographs have been exhibited widely in museums in the United States and Europe and published in over one hundred magazines and newspapers internationally. He has lectured extensively to educate the public about land conservation, resource wars and cultural diversity issues. He has received many awards for his Arctic work including the inaugural Cultural Freedom Fellowship from Lannan Foundation and the inaugural Greenleaf Artist Award from the United Nations Environment Programme. Subhankar makes his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
