Melting Away: Camille Seaman

Sol Mednick Gallery

“Melting Away” is photographer Camille Seaman’s collection of images made over the course of a decade traveling back and forth between the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet. Polar ice continues to shrink at record levels because of climate change.

“Melting Away” is a continuation of Seaman's effort to call attention to and document the quickly disappearing ice in both Polar regions. "I approach the images of icebergs as portraits of individuals, much like family photos of my ancestors," Seaman says of the project she began in 2003. "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... My photographic project comes at a critical time, having spent over a decade working as expedition photographer on small ships in both the Arctic and Antarctic for many months at a time. I have documented what can only be described as the 'Melting Away.'"

Seaman is currently a TED Senior Fellow as well as a Stanford Knight Fellow.
