A recent profile on CNN’s website, Antarctica is Changing. The Impact Could Be Catastrophic, offers a glimpse into her body of work and what she has witnessed.

Her work has been published in National Geographic, Italian and German Geo, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and Outside among others. Her monograph and photo collection Melting Away Images of the Arctic and Antarctic, was published by Princeton Architectural Press.
