Once again, Tom Hegen is interested in the climate issues he laments and documents through several impressive aerial photographs. Entitled “The Two Degrees”, this project focuses on the dramatic effects of global warming on the Arctic ice cap in Greenland. “Rising sea levels will be one of the major environmental challenges of the 21st century due to melting ice.
The Greenland Ice Cap alone contains enough water to raise sea level by more than 7 meters. The Arctic is also the place where warming is the fastest on the planet, “he says.
This series is more than just a photo project. It’s a real call to focus on the biggest challenge we face globally today. Striking images for an awareness more than ever essential. For more information, visit the photographer’s website.
