Snow Land is a photo essay of resistance to climate change. Photographer Marco Zorzanello‘s photographs of the Dolomites ski area, one of the largest ski areas in the world, show how we seem to be in deep denial that we need to change our lives in response to climate change. These mountains rarely get enough snow at the ski area anymore, so artificial snow is made, over 1200km of slopes, and the ski area visitation has *increased* in the past few years, despite the complete absence of natural snow. This keeps the area’s economy going, but provides surreal scenes of skiers lounging on rocky slopes in t-shirts, next to thin ribbons of artificial snow.
