  6. Maldives, 2013 and 2014/15

    Leave a Comment

    In order to continue the story of polar melt, which is a large contributing factor to the rising seas, Forman, Denny, and Lebofsky followed the meltwater from the Arctic to the Equator. In 2013, they teamed up with local EcoCare activists in the Maldives, the lowest and flattest country on Earth. They photographed and painted the landscape while recording stories and filming interviews amidst the country’s first democratic election since the military coup in 2012. Forman and Denny returned in late 2014/early 2015 to continue investigating the relationship between climate change, politics, and religion in the Maldives. Again, they partnered with grassroots organizers, journalists, and artists whose generosity and kindness allows Ice to Islands to celebrate and represent a country that could be entirely underwater within this century.
