Nick Brandt Vol. 3: The Day May Break | Author: Zoe Lescaze

Otherworldly Portraits in an Age of Rising Sea Levels. SINK / RISE is the third chapter of The Day May Break, Nick Brandt's ongoing global series portraying people and animals that have been impacted by environmental degradation and destruction.

This third chapter focuses on South Pacific Islanders impacted by climate change and serves as a stark reminder of the looming reality many island nations face. The local people in these photos, photographed underwater in the ocean off the coast of the Fijian islands, symbolize the many people who stand to lose their homes, land and livelihoods in the coming decades as the water rises. Brandt's emphatic portraits bridge the often abstract concept of climate change and are a reminder that behind every statistic about rising sea levels, there's a tangible human story.
