About the Author


Diane Burko has placed herself at the intersection of science and art. Her work focuses on monumental geological phenomena, which merges a vision that is panoramic, intimate and provocative. Her images of melting glaciers and threatened coral reef ecosystems reflect research and visual data from scientists and her own on-site experiences. Burko's paintings, photographs, and time-based media are urgent reminders of the vanishing beauty and peril of a warming planet. Included in over 100 exhibits thus far, her works bear witness to changes in our environment, translating data into compelling imagery. Joining expeditions in Svalbard, Norway, Argentina, Greenland, Antarctica, and most recently, Hawaii and American Samoa, she has seen firsthand the rapid transformation of landscapes essential to life on earth. Her creative response, represented in these pages, compels us to take notice and action. Along with her photography and painting, this book is comprised of related imagery, installation shots, and general information that is important to anyone interested in our planet's survival.
