What does the impact of climate change look like? Who feels the results of our exploitation of the planet we all live on?

Inocente Gomez, a farmer in Jesus de Otoro, despairs over a harvest that once again looks as though it will fail.
"Before, we could tell you the exact days when the rain would come," he says. "In the past 5-6 years, it hasn't been possible to predict when the rains will come.
Changes in the rain patterns have time and again resulted in the maize failing to mature for harvest."

The museum was founded in 1995 when the Norwegian Government bought the collections that belonged to Preus Fotomuseum, a private museum. The Norwegian State is the owner of the museum. In May 2001 the museum moved into Magasin A at Karljohansvern in Horten, about one hours drive from Oslo. The interior decoration is drawn by Architect Sverre Fehn. The collections contains photographies, ather kind of images, cameras and other technical equipment that shed light on the history of photography. There is a wide representation of the international history of photography in the image collection. Preus museum's library holds international standard.
