Hard Rain - an environmental exhibition

Hard Rain is an exhibition of photos by Mark Edwards and others alongside the lyrics of Bob Dylan's prophetic song "A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall". It's currently showing at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh until 31January 2008. It is a powerful demonstration of the damage we are doing to the earth and should act as a wake-up call to all of us to do our bit to protect the earth before its too late. I did feel that the exhibition lacked ideas for people to take away to put into practice, so some people may have forgotten their outrage by the time they've got home. However its a very moving exhibition and if you're in any of the areas where it is being shown, go and see it.

More information on the exhibition, the accompanying book and the project behind it can be found at the Hard Rain website, which also hosts a mini-debate on the issues raised by the exhibition.
