Photographer Nick Bowers, art director Celine Faledam and copy writer Rachel Guest have joined together with scientists to bring attention to global warming in a way that has never been done before with their project Scared Scientists.

In Scared Scientists, rather than point the camera at polar bears or melting glaciers, Bowers instead points the camera at the scientist who study climate change. The somber black and white photos help to underscore the fear that these scientists have, but more terrifying still are the expressions on their faces. In addition to the photographs, there is a brief interview where the scientists share what it is they fear the most.

With Scared Scientist,s it was Nick Bowers' intention to show the humanity of the people who study climate change.
