8.5" x 11" Archival Pigment Print - First Edition of 25.

“Like the canary in the coal mine, the climate changes already evident in the Arctic are a call to action.” Susan Collins

Polar bear cubs remain with their mothers for survival until they are 30 months old. The cubs in this image were still less than 1 year old. What struck me most about this scene were the lengths and extremes of selflessness that a mother polar bear must go through to birth and raise her cubs to independence.

For this image I chose a wider angle of view to highlight the juxtaposition between the warm, nurturing love a mother must give her children and the harsh, frigid environment of the sub-Arctic tundra.
