The Arctic Melt

Images of a Disappearing Landscape

The term “climate change” obscures the infinite number of global disturbances caused by rising temperatures. One of the dooziest is taking place at the earth’s poles: ice is changing to water and that melting exposes land and ocean—much more absorbent of solar heat than reflective white ice. The cold, barren Arctic is fragile; we have abundant evidence of that, including the more than fifty jaw-dropping photos captured in The Arctic Melt. From Greenland’s ice sheets and icebergs to sea ice in the Arctic Ocean to Norway’s mountain glaciers, in Diane Tuft’s photos we see devastation in all its wondrous beauty. She has also included several superb haikus to further convey her strong, emotional feelings for the Arctic.
