The Last Iceberg: Camille Seaman

antarctica-Camille Seaman

Camille Seaman’s photography exhibition The Last Iceberg is currently on view at The World Affairs Council, in San Francisco.

Camille approaches the images of icebergs as portraits of individuals, much like family photos of ancestors. She seeks a moment in their life in which they convey their unique personality, some connection to our own experience and a glimpse of their soul which endures.

Nick Cave once sang, “All things move toward their end.” Icebergs give the impression of doing just that, in their individual way much as humans do; they have been created of unique conditions and shaped by their environments to live a brief life in a manner solely their own. Some go the distance traveling for many years slowly being eroded by time and the elements; others get snagged on the rocks and are whittled away by persistent currents. Still others dramatically collapse in fits of passion and fury. The Last Iceberg chronicles just a handful of the many thousands of icebergs that are currently headed to their end.

On view June 5 – August 2nd, 2013
