Created as a way to highlight global warming, the beautiful images show a fragility to the huge ice caps

Through the images, which are made up of greys and blues, the photographer said she was hoping to create a sense of beauty, but also sadness.

They help highlight the delicacy of the areas – looking to draw attention to the consequences of global warming.

Other locations California-based Camille, 45, visited included Alaska, Greenland, Svalbard, Arctic Russia and Arctic Norway.

Camille, TED senior fellow, said: “I want people to have a personal moment with the images.

“Some feel fear, or awe, others see beauty and sadness.

“I want them to feel something that will hopefully inspire the start of a relationship with this planet.

“The images have a range of responses – some still do not think climate change is anything we should be concerned with.

“Others are thankful I have shown them something they might not ever witness themselves.”
