Exhibition: Long Environmentalism in the Near North

From Alaska to Siberia, the Arctic has been a target for extractive resource development for decades. In 2002, Senator Frank Murkowski, making a play to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), held up a piece of blank white poster board, claiming that the ANWR is "flat, its unattractive; don't be misinformed".

Subhankar Banerjee, a scientist-turned-nature photographer, presents a different image. One that is not flat, unattractive nothingness. He uses his photography to raise awareness about the Arctic, never imagining that his work would be the center of such political controversy, as "big oil and big legislation" realized the threat of these living images.

Subhankar Banerjee, the Lannan Foundation Endowed Chair of Land Arts of the American West and Professor of Art & Ecology at the University of New Mexico, is an Indian born American photographer, writer, activist and environmental humanities scholar. He is a leading voice on issues of Arctic conservation, indigenous human rights, resource wars, and climate change. His research focuses on the intersection of art, ecocultural activism and environmental humanities.
