Helena Christensen's photos of climate change in Peru
Model and photographer Helena Christensen recently returned to Peru, her mother's native country, to document the dramatic effects that climate change is having on people today. Helena's photographs from the trip will be exhibited at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen this December.
Following her trip to Peru, Helena said: "The impacts of the climate change are extremely severe in the areas we visited. The farmers we met and talked to are already living very hard lives, and are now being forced to adapt to salvage the effects of the rapidly changing climate."
The effects of climate change are already devastating, and they affect poor people – those who have played little part in causing the problem – first and worst.
