Reflections on Adaptation by Shirley Baker

"Walking from the Forum venue to my hotel every evening allowed for reflection on the day's topics.  The literal reflection of the capitol building in these windows was a figurative reflection of my thoughts."

"Iceland’s Vanishing Beauty" Collection

Iceland's Vanishing Beauty is a photography and video collection by Michael Kienitz which has been gathered in Southeast Iceland, at Vatnajökull National Park. Using conventional digital cameras and drones equipped with cameras this five year project documents the glacial geomorphology which covers over 8 % of the country. The imagery shows wide immersive shots of the glacial terrain which has been dramatically impacted by climate change. This unusual beauty is elusive due to climate change, volcanic eruptions and other environmental factors. Those who attend this presentation will come away with a visual reminder of at least two things. The impact of climate change on Iceland’s glaciers and the continual change and transformation of Iceland’s dramatic beauty. Watch photographer Michael Kienitz present the collection at the 4th National Adaptation Forum here
