Food Planet Future
The Art of Turning Food & Climate Perils Into Possibilities
Food Planet Future draws upon art, research, and innovative practices to reimagine the tangled crises of food security, climate change, and biodiversity loss. Here, surreal photography, fact, metaphor, humor, story, and environmental commentary invite us to look closer and celebrate solutions. They connect us to the climate we help shape.

“In a world filled with processed, ready-to-eat food, we have lost touch with what food actually is, and how our modern diets are the result of the domestication of the wild relatives of our crops by humans over millennia. Through his stunning images and illuminating text Robert Dash not only brings beauty to our everyday foods, but also reminds us of the crucial role of pollinators and decomposers, the intrinsic connection of crops and food to cultures, their importance for human nutrition, medicine and health, and the close associations between farming systems, soil health and climate.
Robert’s work shines a new light on the wonder and microscopic complexity of our food, appeals to the need to diversify our diets, and offers hope that the strength of the human spirit and our collective ingenuity is sufficient to implement solutions at a time of multiple crises.”
