Publisher’s Description

Francesco Bosso presents his latest photographic work documenting with stunning black-and-white images the dramatic melting of the icebergs in the Arctic.

The “Global Warming” is devouring the glaciers of the Earth. As the author explains: “While touring around the Arctic borders, I have felt strong emotions, the fluidity of such a natural beauty is unsettling. You can immediately perceive the fragility and disaster in progress. Although the Arctic is so far away, it really is the thermometer of the Earth, therefore, it is important that people become more aware of the unfortunate consequences of global warming.” Inspired by the aggravating damage of environmental pollution, Last Diamonds aims to denounce the melting of glaciers due to climate change. In light of such issues, the photographer would like to offer his contribution to stop the melting of glaciers and to encourage the public to adhere to an ethic of Conservation of Nature. The images document the beauty of the Arctic through the emblematic icons of the biggest icebergs, which let the viewers think about the unique characteristics of such sites. Icebergs now becoming increasingly rare, precious jewels of nature at risk of extinction. Although they have a short life, sometimes just a few weeks, they are as majestic as rocky mountains, unavoidably beaten and sculpted by wind and water, creating new shapes unabated.
