About the Project
Collapse the Distance is a multimedia storytelling project about climate change on the Pacific front lines. Fusing photojournalism, audio storytelling, and video, Collapse the Distance transports its audience to the low-lying Pacific island nations of Tuvalu and Kiribati, sibling nations that face hungry tides, storm surges, and a freshwater crisis.
The project has been touring around the United States. Previous exhibits include Telluride Mountain Film Festival (May 2017), Harvard University (April/May 2017), and ClimateCon (March 2018). We're looking forward to upcoming events at the Global Climate Action Summit (September 2018) and Yale University (October 2018).
Forest Woodward’s photographs and Canyon Woodward’s writings have been featured in National Geographic Adventure, while Mattea Mrkusic’s audio stories have aired on PRI: The World and NPR stations across the country.
