Exhibition
Turaluralu Tuvalu

OPENING 6PM TUESDAY 22 MAY
by Dr Martyn Jolly, Head of Photography and Media Arts, ANU School of Art

Turaluralu Tuvalu is an exhibition of landscape and seascape photographs concerning the effect of sea level rise on low-lying South Pacific islands. The title of the exhibition refers to ‘bidding goodbye’ to Tuvalu, as it is among the most susceptible islands in the world to global warming induced sea level rise. The suite of photographs were taken on four different islands in Tonga in 2009. However
the photographs do not seek to represent issues or ideas that are specific to Tonga or Tuvalu, but rather are universal to all land that is susceptible to sea level rise.

Josh Wodak is a visiting artist in the Photography and Media Arts workshop at the School of Art
