Photography by Camille Seaman


Autumn is approaching rapidly here in the US. Cooler weather, shorter days, and changing flora are in store. This annual downshift has a direct effect on my perspective, rekindling passions for the smells, sounds, and sights of the harvest season. So while browsing through some photography, an artist that captures the intensity of the natural world synced with my renewed captivations.

Camille Seaman studied photography at State University of New York at Purchase in 1992. She is a resident of Emeryville, California, but has been traveling to the Polar Regions since 2003 to document the grand and fragile environment. Camille shoots with various cameras, digital and film, and employs minimal manipulation to ensure that the photos are true to her memory and sight. In addition to being published in National Geographic, TIME, Camera Arts and others, the National Academy of Sciences, Washington DC, featured “The Last Iceberg” series in a solo event in 2008.

Camille Seaman has an eye for natural boldness, which envelops the viewer. I need not explain. Browse her portfolio – the chroma, shapes, and negative space speak clearly. The eerie vastness, sharp angles and limited, yet concentrated colors in her compositions exude an air of modernism and concentration.
