New York artist Zaria Forman grew up traveling the world with a mother who photographed beautiful Arctic landscapes. In this short film by Jesse Brass, Forman explains how her art, inspired by her mother’s photography, is a way of addressing climate change. “I find it important with my art to represent the beauty in the landscape, because I think that helps people fall in love with it more easily,” she says. Forman hopes that people who fall in love with nature will be more compelled to make a difference.
