Leslie Sobel, Environmentalist Photographer/Gallery Reception
One year ago, Leslie Sobel boarded a single-engine plane in the Canadian Yukon bound for the remote Eclipse Icefield. The lone artist in a group of two climate scientists and two grad students, she spent eight days at altitude on the glacier in the St. Elias Mountains. She took 5,000 photographs, journaled, and helped with the work of the camp – pitching tents, digging them out after snowstorms, cooking, and, every few days, digging a new latrine. Meet the artist and take a photographic journey to one of the largest non-polar ice fields on earth.
