Gideon Mendel (b. 1959, Johannesburg) explores the human dimension of climate change by focusing on floods across geographical and cultural boundaries. Photographing for the last ten years in thirteen different countries where normal life has been suddenly turned upside down by flooding, his Drowning World images span multiple narrative series and include portraiture, video and found photographs, evoking our shared vulnerability to global warming and questioning our sense of stability in the world.
