CAIRO – 12 August 2017: Contemporary artist and photographer Justin Brice Guariglia will be bringing the catastrophic results of climate change right next to Trump's own doorstep, in his home at Florida according to a statement directed to U.S President Donald Trump withdrawing America from the

Paris climate accord


The exhibit, titled ' Earth Works: Mapping the Anthropocene', will open in September at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, just across from where the President's house is.

It features images of melting glaciers that Guariglia has collected with NASA while in a mission to Greenland.

Guariglia tells the Art Newspaper that “One of the unique things an artist can do is to help shape realities and, at the same time, have a political and social message. Artists today really have to use art to carry an important message forward.”

Based in Brooklyn, Guariglia was formerly a photographer for the National Geographic magazine before he shifted his sights to contemporary visual art.

Alongside his photography, Gurariglia has written various books and has even developed a phone app titled 'After Ice', which utilizes virtual-reality technology that shows selfie takers what the area around them will look like after climate change causes sea levels to rise.
