The Effects of Climate Change on the Pacific Region Warm Waters is a long-term photography project investigating climate change in communities living throughout the Pacific Ocean. Travelling from Alaska to New Zealand, documentary photographer Vlad Sokhin is collecting visual evidence of the impacts of man-made global warming. It is considered the most serious environmental problem in human history. World leaders, lobbyists and scientists have been working to assess the causes and solutions. However, the predicted effects of global climate change are already occurring. Documenting the world’s smallest nations and countries with the most established economies, Warm Waters shows how climate change is not a distant reality for future generations, but an immediate problem that must be addressed. THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT Started working on this project in 2013, Vlad Sokhin continues spending most of his time in the Pacific. Warm Waters is intended to cover the whole Pacific Region, including Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Tokelau, Vanuatu, Fiji, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Palau, Northern Mariana Islands, Niue, Solomon Islands, United States of America, Australia, New Zealand and other countries.

지구 온난화와 기후 변화는 태평양의 저지대 국가들과 북극에 위치한 지역사회들에 대한 실존적인 위협이다. 수면 상승, 해안 침식, 융빙 현상, 북극과 남극 바다의 축소, 영구동토층의 해동, 거대 태풍들은 수십 년 안에 많은 지역사회들이 사라질 것이라는 과학자들의 예측이 사실임을 증명하고 있다. “웜워터스”는 태평양지역 도처 지역사회에서 발생하고 있는 기후변화에 대한 장기간의 탐사 다큐멘터리 프로젝트이다. 알래스카에서 뉴질랜드에 이르기까지 다큐멘터리 사진가 블라드소킨은 작업을 통해 인간으로부터 기인한 지구 온난화의 시각적인 증거를 수집하고 있다. 이 것은 인류역사상 발행한 가장 심각한 환경적 문제라는 점을 고려한 작업이다
