The Diane Burko ‘Politics of Snow’ series has effectively captured the Earth’s rapidly changing landscape with her depictions of the glaciers. Her series takes inspiration from archival photographs of remote peaks in Alaska, Montana and the Alps,

Diane Burko paints the scenic mountains as they should be -- frosty and wintry. Afterwards, she contrasts that image with another painting of how they currently look, juxtaposing the historical and the present view. Diane Burko’s ‘Politics of Snow’ series certainly make the viewer think of global warming and the future of our Earth.
