The Last Iceberg

I love photography and if I shouldn't make movies I'll take pictures of everything around me. I joined to worldwide photography competition Cl!ck about it. This was great oportunity and I discovered lot of great photographers. I will make lot of photos from Kenya about Millennium villages. But now, we talking about climate change.
The reason why I started writing this article about photography is Camille Seaman.
Camille Seaman was born in 1969 to a Native American father and African American mother. She graduated in 1992 from the State University of New York at Purchase. Her photographs have been published in many magazines like National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times and others. Camille Seaman takes photographs all over the world using digital and film cameras in multiple formats. She works in a documentary/fine art tradition and since 2003 has concentrated on the fragile environment of the Polar Regions.
From her trips, Camille Seaman has produced two major portfolios. The Last Iceberg presents icebergs as old men of the sea, adrift and slowly “heading to their end.” Seaman thinks of the images of icebergs as she does portraits of individuals, much like family photos of ancestors. Dark Ice is a study of icebergs’ movements and behaviors; the way they space themselves out.
I'm surprise how much accessible are polar regions in this time. Ships carry tens of thousands of visitors to Antarctica each year as tourists. Price is maybe high, but it is still affordable.
I really want visit this place (my wish is see northern lights on my own eyes, not just in TV), but this is not Disneyland or another attraction. This is problem of our world. We don't going to place where are troubles. We don't buy tickets to see war, famine or something else. We must visit this place to spread a word about this problems. And that Camille do...
