Philip Jessup has worked for many years to create low carbon economies in world cities, including Toronto where he served as executive director of The Atmospheric Fund for nine years. Realizing that photography can deepen public awareness of climate threats to the planet, he is now documenting the beauty and fragility of threatened landscapes—especially coastal marshlands and islands.
Phil has exhibited his work in Toronto, Montréal, London, U.K., Washington DC, Louisville, and New Orleans. The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London recently selected a large cibachrome, Flooded Tree (2005), for its seminal retrospective, Into the Woods: Trees in Photography. The V&A and several international corporations collect his work. Phil also takes on selected commissions for foundations and charities.
