The Icebergs Cometh

The beautiful images in this exhibition convey a dark beauty and uncertain future for Greenland, a part of the world that has come to be used as a barometer for the state of the environment.

The Icebergs Cometh

About The Icebergs Cometh

Images of icebergs from the worlds largest and most sparsely populated island.

As global warming marches on apace and mining companies are set to exploit Greenlands mineral deposits, in time for Donald Trump to offer to buy the island, these beautiful images convey a dark beauty and uncertain future for this part of the world. A part of the world that has come to be used as a barometer for the state of the environment.

In reality it is already too late and only a global catastrophe will motivate the wealthy to do something to self preserve.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Icebergs Cometh are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
