Vatnajokull Ice Cave

Vatnajokull Ice Cave was captured within the southwest tongue of Iceland’s Vatnajokull icecap while on assignment to capture and document the year over year glacial retreat. The objective of the journey was to promote environmental awareness and education of the significant climactic changes occurring in the Arctic. The face of this glacial has seen more than a kilometer of retreat in 36 months time.
