HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Documentary photographer Esther Horvath specializes in the polar regions and is spending months on board the Polarstern icebreaker to document the work and life on the Arctic sea ice.
Telling scientific polar stories through the universal language of photography, Horvath aims to document the work of scientists who are delivering crucial information, highlighting the changes in the Arctic Ocean.
What motivates me is the changes happening in the polar regions, in particular the arctic ocean. It’s the most rapidly changing environment on our planet. As a documentary photographer having access to these places, I feel a responsibility to document the changes there.Esther Horvath
The MOSAiC Mission
In September 2019, the German research icebreaker Polarstern set sail from Tromsø, Norway, to spend a year drifting through the Arctic Ocean – trapped in ice. The name of their mission is MOSAiC.
The goal of the MOSAiC expedition is to take the closest look ever at the Arctic as the epicenter of global warming and to gain fundamental insights that are key to better understand global climate change. The MOSAiC expedition will bring a modern research icebreaker close to the north pole for a full year including for the first time in polar winter.
