A New Take On Climate Change


COOPH Ambassador Ben Von Wong recently embarked on a photo mission like no other. To raise awareness about climate change and bring attention to the indigenous communities it affects, Ben and his team found themselves on a Hawaiian lava field in the middle of the night.

The result was this series of stunningly emotive portraits in which just a few steps separate the subject from certain death. All proceeds of the shoot were donated to victims of Hurricane Matthew.
