during the early 1900’s, Arctic glaciers were nature’s most mystical and undiscovered wonders. Over a century of analysis, research, and exploitation later, the glaciers are becoming a haunting testament towards aftereffects of environment change.
Christian Åslund, a Swedish photojournalist just who works together with Greenpeace, collected some very early pictures of glaciers in Svalbard, Norway from the Norwegian Polar Institute, and juxtaposed all of them next to his very own pictures of the identical locations from 2002. The differences were unbelievable. He is utilising the photo series to market #MyClimateAction, a National Geographic campaign motivating conversation about climate modification, and also as a protest against Norwegian oil businesses drilling inside melting Arctic.
