At this time last year, I didn’t know about Kivalina either – until I started looking for a photo project.  This 1.9 mile island about 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle is said to be inundated in 10 years due to climate change.  KUOW (NPR Seattle) interviewed me about my visit.  My trip was made possible by generous donors, Brent Newell and the Center for Race Poverty and the Environment.  Please take a moment to learn about the people who live here and their struggle to find a new home.  http://kuow.org/post/photos-alaskan-village-will-be-underwater-10-years
