Diane Tuft’s photo series ‘The Arctic Melt’ is not only an inspiring piece of art but also a wake-up call. From Russia, via Svalbard, Norway, Diane embarked on a journey through the Arctic Ocean in a Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker. She visited the North Pole in 2015 and Greenland in 2016 to document the progressing disappearance of one of our planet’s most remarkable landscapes.
The NYC-based photographer points out that the effects of climate change in the Arctic are drastic. In her book ‘The Arctic Melt: Images of a Disappearing Landscape’ she shares her photos and impressions. Diane says; “I hope that my images of this fragile landscape will stimulate discussion and influence policy that will focus on protecting life on earth.”
