Entitled 'Chasing The Light', this stunning portrait series by Zaria Forman is a touching tribute to the artist's late mother and photographer Rena Bass Forman. Before her death, Lena led a historically contextual art expedition that drew inspiration from painter William Bradford’s 1869 works that profiled imagery of the Northwest Coast of Greenland.

Using a pastel medium Zaria Forman creates these striking portraits of the region's remote icebergs, deep ocean views and moody landscapes that evoke a stoic and powerful air.

The 'Chasing The Light' image series features lifelike portrayals of iceberg and snow-covered mountain peaks and the calm oceanic coastline that makes up Greenland's beautiful landscape. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of these striking portraits will be going to 350.org.
