Chinstrap and gentoo penguins climb an iceberg on Elephant Island off the coast of Antarctica. Photographer Camille Seaman captured these images during a six-week period in late 2019 and early 2020.
Camille Seaman didn’t need Monday’s UN report to learn that the Earth has been warming at a breakneck pace.
She’s seen it with her own eyes.
The photographer has been visiting Antarctica on and off since 2004, working on expedition ships for National Geographic. In just the past few years, she has witnessed a noticeable change on the continent.
“What I have seen from 2016 to now, it’s like a different place altogether,” she said.
