Oh, Land of Ice, Why Are You Melting?

7.23.19

5 days is not enough to see one of the world’s most beautiful places. Nevertheless, my father and I made an attempt. Nearly half the trip we spent driving between sights, though we only covered a quarter of the island’s coast. Punished for such haste, an SD card with half of the mission’s content was lost along the way— something I grieve to this day. However, while there, the official declaration of a deceased glacier made national news. My loss was small in comparison to that of the Icelandic peoples. So, with eyes newly opened to the observable effects of climate change, my lens followed suit to capture the landscapes we must all work to protect.
