Arctic The Arctic-the northernmost polar region of the earth-is among the world's most vulnerable regions to the effects of warming temperatures and climate change. It is vast, its glaciers massive, its wildlife surreal and its ice sheet, the second largest in the world, is over a mile in thickness. After a recent trip to Svalbard and the fjords of Eastern Greenland, I chose to focus on the details of this sweeping landscape. The details were in the ice; they were in a polar bear and it’s cub walking along broken sea ice, seemingly minuscule in the enormity of the environment they inhabit; they were in the way the light hit a glacier with chiseled edges from calving that could be seen from miles away. In light of the recent climate talks in Paris in November 2015, it is clear that climate change is one of the most pressing issues faced by our current and future generations and one that requires urgent and immediate attention.
