Photographer Spotlight: Sebastian Copeland [VIDEO]
By Michael KurcfeldApril 10, 2014
In his photographs Copeland seductively captures what he feels is the most eloquent argument for protecting the planet’s endangered natural realms. He is explorer, scientist, artist, activist and spiritual seeker. To do his work, he suffers frostbite, creature-killing temperatures, and soul-testing isolation. Specializing in the systemic changes that are taking place in the polar regions, the all too visible result of climage change, he works with the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado to provide telltale images that no one else has access to. At the same time, Copeland bears witness to the sublime face of Earth’s last unsullied terrestrial frontier.
