The issues of global warming and other environmental problems we have caused on this beautiful planet we live on have inspired many artists to speak up and point out our mistakes. Sebastian Copeland’s book Arctica: The Vanishing North is one of many works that are here to warn us about the consequences of our actions and to remind us of the natural beauties we need to preserve. This book’s here to inspire us to create a healthier and sustainable environment for the future.
Sebastian Copeland’s a famous photographer, but along his profession, he’s also a polar explorer, author and environmental activist who has a great appreciation for the North Pole. That’s why he wants to raise consciousness about the need to preserve this last untamed piece of nature. The Arctica photography book features amazing scenery and it has a high artistic value as the author himself was mesmerized by this remote natural treasure.
In the photos featured in this book, you can see not only beautiful pictures but also the author’s passion about Arctica and his highly poetic vision of it. Few places on this planet can match the splendor of the ethereal North Pole. Since not many people have the opportunity to visit this natural setting, the best way to get familiar with it is through this amazing photo book. The author shows unparalleled authority on the subject, as well as a unique appreciation of this lonely and misconceived spot.
Although the book’s very poetic and captures amazing and unique settings that you can truly enjoy observing, the goal the author had in mind when he was making the book is very pragmatic. Arctica: The Vanishing North’s supposed to amaze, seduce, raise awareness and call to action. We have to realize what we’re doing and to see that many natural beauties will be permanently lost if we don’t change our ways and our mindset. With this great work, Copeland’s trying to alarm us that steps towards a sustainable future have to be taken soon.
