Tales of a Polar Photographer

National Council member Camille Seaman documents our fragile polar regions through photography, evoking a sense of our interconnected relationship with these distant ecosystems. In a recent TEDx talk, she shares about her life and takes us on a tour of the changing landscapes she has so skillfully honored and made visible in her twenty year career as a visual storyteller.

Her approach to photography reveals a powerful insight for this moment:

That illusion that you are separated from nature;

That illusion that you are isolated, dissolves.

And suddenly you are part of nature again.
