Luka Tomac is an artist and activist based in Zagreb, Croatia.  For over a decade, he has actively participated in national and international environmental and climate movements.

He has attended several United Nations Climate Change summits around the world, held lectures on art and activism and dedicated his visuals to amplify the voices of resisting, resilient and threatened communities. His support and experience spans from Eastern Europe to Southeast Asia to Africa in solidarity with those affected by environmental and human rights impacts.  His medium of power is photography, which he uses to address social, environmental and climate justice stories. He has also realized several installations and integrated photographs in public spaces and natural environments. Tomac has published and exhibited his photography and work on extensive occasions and is now in the process of finishing his fourth book, a visual diary of communities on the frontlines of climate change, titled 1*C - R i s i n g.
