Addressing Environmental Issues through Photography and Video
Science communication is the public communication of science-related topics to non-experts. Communicating science to the public is increasingly important in today's society. However according to some research, some scientists do not have the skills necessary to do so effectively. This is why visual artists, photographers, and videographers become increasingly important to more effectively create and use images or video to overcome apathy towards species and ecosystems by visualizing complex data and communicating about an environmental issue to inspire action.
By producing photographic books, video documentaries and multimedia exhibitions, with a distinct artistic vision, we seek to gradually shift the values of society towards sustainability and promote environmental conservation. Furthermore, our mission is to increase knowledge about nature by sensitizing children through environmental programs in public schools and by sharing our material with the society using social media channels.
We might not all speak the same language, but we do understand images. We believe that visually well planned photographic books can inspire positive change! Últimos Refúgios is experienced in implementing editorial projects of professional quality as well as artistic and scientific value.
We use the medium video for transmitting stories in a way that photography can not. Videos have the vantage to inspire the human senses without being limited to vision, taking a message further. With our documentaries we seek to portray natural beauty, socio-environmental and cultural situations of the areas in which we implement preservation projects.
