Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

On Satur­day, May 1, pho­tog­ra­pher and en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Mark Ed­wards brings his trav­el­ing Hard Rain — Our Head­long Col­li­sion With Na­ture project to the out­door plaza of the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St., 989-7541). The pre­sen­ta­tion brings to­gether im­ages — some grim, some up­lift­ing — of mankind’s re­la­tion­ship with na­ture with the writ­ten lyrics to Bob Dylan’s 1962 song, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” The im­ages doc­u­ment Ed­wards’ trav­els to more than 150 coun­tries, where he in­ter­acted with peo­ple in an ef­fort to con­vey and cap­ture on film the depen­dency of all species on clean air and wa­ter, safe and plen­ti­ful food, and healthy ecosys­tems.

Ed­wards writes in his com­pan­ion book, “We are turn­ing back the evo­lu­tion­ary clock, recre­at­ing the warmer, less sta­ble at­mos­phere that ex­isted mil­lions of years ago. … We still do not re­ally be­lieve we are chang­ing the cli­mate. … We are in col­lec­tive de­nial, sleep­walk­ing blindly to­ward a tip­ping point where big­ger and dead­lier en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems over­take our abil­ity to solve them.” The project opens with a 4 p.m. re­cep­tion and an il­lus­trated talk by Ed­wards. There is a sug­gested min­i­mum do­na­tion of $5. Call 231-3680 for in­for­ma­tion.
