Melting Away: a Ten Year Journey through Our Endangered Polar Regions

In Melting Away: a Ten Year Journey through Our Endangered Polar Regions, Camille Seamon tells of her experiences traveling and photographing the Arctic and Antarctic, an area she found herself strangely drawn to revisit for 10 years. The extraordinary photographs and colors, primarily blues, predominate in an incredible variety of shades. “Seaman reveals her struggle to be a good mother while dealing with the burden of being the voice of distressed remote locations. Seaman has not been back to the Poles since August 2011 because the disappearance of ice and snow broke her heart. She watched firsthand the devastation on the polar bears and local birds caused by melting ice and warming seas. Her unique perspective of the landscape is entwined with her Shinnecock Native American upbringing: she sees no two icebergs alike.”–Aline Smithson
