Photographs by Taco Anema
Essay by Valli Moussa, President of the IUCN







Taco Anema was born in Holland in 1950 and started his career as a photographer in 1980. Specializing in photojournalism, he worked for the major daily and weekly newspapers, traveling to the former Eastern Bloc to report on the rise and fall of the dissident movements. Later his attention shifted to artistic photography, working both in the corporate world (for clients including Unilever, Shell, Heineken), as well as contributing work to exhibitions at The Rijksmuseum, The Stedelijk Museum,and the Deutsch Architecture Museum and to book publications (such as Holland Festival, Verbeelding van Leiden, World of Energy). In the 1980s, he increasingly spent time on personal documentary projects on a variety of subjects, including fashion, energy production and consumption, banks and money, poets and painters. He has served on multiple award juries and government commissions on photography in the Netherlands. In 2003 he began work on Tales of Water, a Child’s View.

Founded in 1948, the World Conservation Union (IUCN) brings together states, government agencies and a diverse range of non-governmental organizations in a unique world partnership: over 1000 members in all, spread across some 150 countries. As a Union, IUCN seeks to influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable. The World Conservation Union builds on the strengths of its members, networks and partners to enhance their capacity and to support global alliances to safeguard natural resources at local, regional and global levels.
