  • Art + Environment: True North – The story behind the image

    In 2006, photographer Gautier Deblonde joined a collective of artists and writers on a trip to Svalbard, an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The trip was organised by Cape Farewell, and aimed to bring creative voices together to highlight the growing climate emergency. 

    The images created on this trip launched a new body of work True North, an ongoing series that Deblonde has developed with multiple return trips to the island since, in which he is exploring the changing landscape, the melting glaciers and collaborating with climate scientists who live and work in the area.

    DACS selected one of these striking images to lead our Art + Environment series. Here Gautier shares the story behind the project.
