For Immediate Release
Conservation Photographer Dawna Mueller presents her first Canadian Exhibition:
Anthropocene – Vanishing Landscapes
Vancouver, BC – Dawna Mueller, a Canadian living in Switzerland, and a passionate advocate for the planet, is excited to announce her first Canadian Photo Exhibition to be held in Vancouver, BC. In addition to sharing her stunning large scale black and white photos of glaciers, mountains and icebergs, Dawna brings awareness to the devastating effects of climate change on the fragile ecosystems in remotest polar and alpine regions of the world. In her Exhibition, Anthropocene – Vanishing Landscapes, are a culmination of photos from Dawna’s expeditions to the Arctic, Antarctic and the Swiss Alpine regions and it opens with a Vernissage on Friday, October 12, 2018, at 5 pm at Back Gallery Project in Vancouver before moving to Switzerland and Austria.
In her Dawna Mueller Photography Facebook Page announcing this event, Dawna writes, “I have been traveling to the Arctic, Antarctic and Alpine regions for a few years now and have been photographically documenting what I see in the changing landscapes as a result of climate change and global warming. I see glaciers in full retreat or completely gone like when I was in Greenland last week. I have watched polar bears swimming for hours looking for ice. As well, I experienced record high temperatures when it should have been below zero. The planet is in peril and the weather patterns are causing havoc in all areas of the world, no one is immune from the destruction and devastation. I want to show the beauty of what I see in these fragile ecosystems because collectively we can work together to save this planet, it is the only home we have.”
As a young adult Dawna spent every summer for over a decade in the Yukon which is wild, raw and amazing for the visual senses. This experience in the pristine nature left an indelible impression in her mind – one of mountains, valleys and rivers relatively uninhabited except for the wild animals who roamed them. But mostly this left an imprint in her heart and it is where she now feels most at home; in the mountains and in nature.
In her photo exhibition, Dawna will be showing photos from the Swiss Alpine and polar regions, where the landscapes as we know them are vanishing. She realizes that not everyone has an opportunity to travel to these remote regions of the world, so she hopes that through her photos, the beauty of what the world is at the risk of loosing can be poignantly conveyed.
Dawna truly believes that everything we do in life prepares us to live a life filled with purpose. Everything in her past has contributed to the person she is today; from her legal studies at Allard Hall Law School to her running heavy equipment in Yukon gold mines to pay for years of University. Dawna truly believes that we are all on this planet to live a purposeful and meaningful life, and that is clearly what she is doing. In addition to her photography exhibitions, Dawna speaks to schools, business and groups and was recently trained as a Climate Reality Leader by Al Gore in Los Angeles as part of his Foundation The Climate Reality Project.
She is also a co-founder of a Swiss non profit Society called The Future Planet Forum whose mandate is to bring together science, art and best practice to inform, discuss and provide solutions towards a sustainable future for the planet. Future Planet Forum will be holding its first event in January, 2019 in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
