Illustrating the Beauty of a Disappearing World (Video)

For Zaria Forman, painting the Arctic is a way to address climate change. “It is important to believe that our little actions make a difference and that they count.”

Yes. We must not lose sight of that.

New York artist Zaria Forman grew up traveling the world with a mother who photographed beautiful Arctic landscapes. In this short film by Jesse Brass, Forman explains how her art, inspired by her mother’s photography, is a way of addressing climate change. “I find it important with my art to represent the beauty in the landscape, because I think that helps people fall in love with it more easily,” she says. Forman hopes that people who fall in love with nature will be more compelled to make a difference. ~ National Geographic

  3. Thanks JoAnn, for some stunning pics of the Arctic sea and ice scape, and a fascinating video footage of Zaria at work on translating those photographs into art creations. For sure, these works will contribute to sharpening public awareness and galvanizing people into concerted action on environmental conservation…
