It all started when…

No landscape is exempt from a social or political agenda, and today the narrative of climate change has made that fact not only concrete, but didactic.  It is irrefutable that the world is changing because of mankind, but what that change means and how it is manifesting before us physically is a much more complicated, chaotic and beautiful story than the one presented in the news cycle. These photographs depict the vast landscapes in Svalbard, Norway, the world’s north-most archipelago the summer of 2016, which would go on to become the hottest year recorded in the region. The photographs presented here are poems on the fluidity of place, celebrating the multitudes of a landscape that refused to be any one thing. My goal is to broaden the dialogue surrounding climate change, showing the many ways in which a threatened environment responds to transformation.
