David Arnold has traveled the world photographing some of nature’s most dramatic creations, from the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps to massive coral reefs in the Caribbean.

In his travels, Arnold specifically chose locations that had been photographed by others decades earlier. But he found these areas rendered almost unrecognizable — in some cases destroyed — by climate change.

His work is part of the Double Exposure project, a photographic diary of the climate crisis.

Arnold will be giving a lecture at the New England Aquarium on Thursday, November 15 at 7 p.m.
