Faculty Visitor Joshua de Vincenzo and documentary photographer Maxime Riché will discuss the invisible impacts of climate disasters and whether (or what kind of) recovery is possible. Using the timely example of megafires, their dialogue will make connections between art and research. The conversation will be moderated by CGC | Paris Climate Response Lead Mélody Braun.


Josh DeVincenzo (2023-24 Faculty Visitor) is the Assistant Director of Training and Education and Adjunct Lecturer at Columbia Climate School's National Center for Disaster Preparedness.

Maxime Riché is a photographer & director who lives and works in Paris. For over 12 years, in a line of work he defines as “speculative documentary”, he has dealt with our ability to adapt to the upheavals of our environment and the evolution of our living habits imposed by these new conditions.


Mélody Braun is a Senior Staff Associate at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), seconded as Climate Response Lead to Columbia Global Centers | Paris, to help connect and expand climate engagement and partnerships between New York and France/Europe.
