« Arctic: New Frontier » : Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen co-laureates of the 9th #PrixCarmignac documented the consequences of #globalwarming in the #Arctic region. One of them is the militarization of strategic areas.

Kadir van Lohuizen traveled in the North of #Canada, to Qaussuituq* in the South of Cornwallis Island. It’s one of the coldest inhabited places in the #world. Winter goes from October to June, with temperatures dropping to -50°C. 
Resolute is the strategic point of one of the famous « Northwest Passage » routes, whose water sovereignty is in dispute, particularly with the United States. 
Hence the recent installation of a Canadian Armed Forces training center.

Find out more about the militarization of the Arctic region by many #great powers with the #PrixCarmignacArctic ‘s photographs exhibited in the #French #photo #festivals : @lagacillyphoto & @festivalphotoguilvinec

*Qaussuituq means : « where there is no #dawn »

#Repost @smithsonianmagazine ・・・ Hi everyone! ⁣

This week, the @prixcarmignac is taking over the #Smithsonian feed with the award-winning work of 9th edition #PrixCarmignac laureates @kadirvanlohuizen and @yuri.kozyrev (@noorimages), titled “Arctic: New Frontier,” currently on display at @saatchi_gallery in London, @festivalphotoguilvinec and @lagacillyphoto in France.⁣

This reportage, which follows the photographers’ six month journey from April to September in #2018 as they covered the 15,000 kilometres of the #ArcticCircle, is a visual testimony examining the consequences of #climatechange on the entire region. The forces of #tourism, #militarization, exploitation of #gas and mineral #resources, and the opening of trade routes as a result of #globalwarming mean that the #Arctic is today the site of clashes between countries and multinationals who are locked in a chaotic competition for control of these zones.⁣

Pictured above is Gordon Omnik who stands on watch to spot bowhead whales. The local #Inuit community is allowed to catch 10 of them each year. Normally, the hunting starts when the sea ice breaks in the spring: the whales migrating up north use the channels to come up to breathe. If the ice melts, the whales can swim around with more ease, which makes them much harder to hunt.⁣

#WorldOceansDay @wmo_omm⠀

The World Meteorological Organization report on the state of global climate in 2018 confirms the urgency of climate action.⠀
Sea level is rising at an accelerated rate : « In 2018, the average sea level was about 3.7 mm higher than in 2017 and was the highest ever recorded. »⠀

On this World Oceans Day, it’s important to raise awareness on the impact of our actions on the oceans as they provide 70% of our oxygen…⠀

« Normally, the sun reflects on the surface of sea glaciers. Because of this, this solar energy is not absorbed into the ocean. If the predictions are right, in 11 years during the summer there will be no more ice in the North Pole. The warmth will be absorbed by the ocean and the sea level temperature will rise even further up. It will have serious consequences on our climate and on the world sea maps. I think we are not aware of all this (…).  » – @kadirvanlohuizen, co-laureate of the 9th #PrixCarmignac⠀⠀

The indigenous coastal villages suffer the most from the consequences of #globalwarming which is synonymous with rising waters and coastal erosion and now threatening their very existence and presence.⠀⠀
The 9th #PrixCarmignac co-laureates, @yuri.kozyrev & @kadirvanlohuizen, traveled to these Arctic regions to bring back visual testimonies of the living conditions of the locals.⠀⠀
