This exploration of the relationship between gender and ecology brings together around fifty emerging and established artists across the fields of photography and film. Reflecting on a range of themes, from extractive industries to the politics of care, this book looks at environmental and gender justice as indivisible parts of a global struggle. A culturally diverse selection of works by Laura Aguilar, melanie bonajo, Xaviera Simmons, Minerva Cuevas, Barbara Kruger, Nadia Huggins, Ana Mendieta, Sim Chi Yin, Pamela Singh, Francesca Woodman and others are presented alongside works of an activist nature to demonstrate how women are regularly at the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet.

Amplifying these visions are illuminating essays by experts in the field, including Professor Kathryn Yusoff, Professor Astrida Neimanis, Professor Catriona Sandilands and Professor Elizabeth DeLoughrey, that consider a diverse range of timely topics such as hydrofeminism, the body as earth, queer ecologies, and environmental racism. Together these texts and important artworks reveal how the oppression of women, feminized bodies and indigenous, Black and trans communities and the degradation of the planet are inextricably linked – and the ways in which understanding our environment can resist and overcome the logic of capitalist economies.

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters. This project began as Ault attempted to better understand the landscape surrounding the city, but evolved over the course of 5-years to encompass her changing family, journeys they took and the processing of grief. The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
