The photo exhibition Seen on Earth is a vivid presentation of three international positions that deal with the ongoing destruction of the environment in different ways. The artists Mandy Barker, Eduardo Leal and Simon Norfolk work with photography, one of the most effective means for documenting man-made environmental damages. Their pictures taken on three different continents – Africa, America and Asia – demonstrate the globally growing pollution of the environment as well as the resulting impact on vegetation and climate and the changes in the ecosystem. Their intention is to raise our awareness for a topic that affects the entire world irrespective of where the pollution occurs.
In 2015 the three artists received the Earth Award sponsored by LensCulture. 



Curated by Verena Kaspar-Eisert

The exhibition has been developed in close cooperation with LensCulture and has been made possible by the photographic laboratory Foto Leutner who developed the photographs. LensCulture is one of the largest curated online platforms for contemporary photography worldwide.
