The Last Iceberg: Photos by Camille Seaman








The Last Iceberg: Photos by Camille Seaman

Photos taken in the arctic regions of Svalbard, Greenland, and Antarctica. As part of a project entitled Melting Away, the series captures a brief glimpse of the icebergs and their eventual fate as the planet warms:
The Last Iceberg chronicles just a handful of the many thousands of icebergs that are currently headed to their end. I approach the images of icebergs as portraits of individuals, much like family photos of my ancestors. I seek a moment in their life in which they convey their unique personality, some connection to our own experience and a glimpse of their soul which endures.
