On Wednesday, August 14, at 7 p.m. North End photographer David Arnold will present his climate comparison photographic essay on the Jumbotron at the DCR Memorial Hatch Shell as part of the Annual Green Concert.

Boston Landmarks Orchestra and the New England Aquarium have put together a moving and thought-provoking orchestral program paired with videos of the environmental impacts of climate change. Arnold’s work will be paired with Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings.

David Arnold has been photographing environmental change for several years. He shared this comparison study in 2012 of a glacier in Alaska and a coral reef off St. Croix.
