Alaska Climate ChangED is a project bringing awareness to the fact that Alaska has already experienced the devastating effects of global warming. It's already been changed! Including images of Mendenhall Tidewater Glacier, where the river has risen destroying homes along it banks. Margerie Glacier continually calving into the ocean, and erosion paths to the seaside.
My approach was to capture the natural beauty of the landscape and contrast it with the harsh reality of the black and white photographic style. In an opportunity to record how beautiful Alaska is, and a hope to raise concern for the communities, the environment, and a desire to inspire people to take interest in supporting a sustainable future.
The project has been a great success, and stirs the question, What's happening to Alaska?
