Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen were awarded the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Arcitc; the endowment allowed them to carry out their pioneer double polar exhibition ‘Arctic: New Frontier’.
The photographs in ‘Arctic: Frontier’ are an alarming testimony to the speed of transformation in the region and the upheavals that are taking place on a global scale.
The forces of tourism, militarisation, exploitation of gas and mineral resources, and the opening of trade routes mean that the Arctic is today the site of classes between countries and multinationals who are locked in a chaotic competition for control of these zones, which have taken on strategic importance on the history of humankind due to the effects of global warming.
On display from 15 March – 5 May. More info can be found here.
