The story behind the artwork
We are facing one of the world’s major challenges of our time: global warming. One of the most sensitive areas on the planet is Arctic.
Precisely here is the picture taken, showing an untouched sand beach in Arctic Norway.
Our oceans sustain life on this planet and they are in peril. Many still don’t see or feel the effects of overfishing, pollution, and habitat loss. That’s where SeaLegacy comes in. We use the power of storytelling to create the change we want to see. Awareness is just the beginning. It is time to show the global community what is at stake. We must rally soldiers of support and ignite real and lasting change for our world’s oceans.
This is the story that SeaLegacy tells. This is the story that sparks a global conversation, and the story that inspires people to act. We believe that producing powerful media and art that gives people hope is imperative. Hope is empowerment. Hope is a solution. Hope is a game changer.
We are a collective of some of the most experienced and renowned photographers, filmmakers and storytellers working on behalf of our oceans.
