Video: Documenting the Tasman Glacier with Chris Burkard

Recently, adventure photographer Chris Burkhard teamed up with Icebreaker to attempt to take a single photo that documented the impact of humans on nature. To capture that photo, they went to the Tasman Lake in New Zealand, to inspect the Tasman Glacier there. As it turns out, this stunningly beautiful lake is just 40 years old and the result of the glacier itself melting and retreating. This gave everyone involved in the project a moment to take pause and realize that we are fundamentally altering our planet in ways that we don’t fully understand as of yet. This video takes us along on that journey and it is a powerful one.
