A critically acclaimed international photography exhibition has taken up residence in a special outdoor gallery at Plymouth University.

Since "Hard Rain" was launched in May 2006 it has been seen by more than 15 million people on every continent and been hosted by city centres, botanic gardens, universities, and the United Nations.

Created by photographer Mark Edwards to illustrate Bob Dylan's Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall lyrics, it has attracted huge public and critical acclaim, along with the support and endorsement of political and environmental leaders across the world.

Hard Rain has now been joined by Whole Earth? – a new display which offers solutions in issues such as climate change, energy, fresh water, oceans and agriculture.

Professor Stephen Sterling, who heads the university's Centre for Sustainable Futures, said: "This is a stunning outdoor exhibition of photographs and stimulating text, depicting environment and development issues that are increasingly affecting present lives and our collective futures."

The launch took place last night with a 50-minute presentation by Mr Edwards.
