Although most people know her as a stunning Danish fashion model, Helena Christensen is also an accomplished photographer and a dedicated environmentalist.
Therefore, she spent four years taking pictures of indigenous people who live in some of the poorest regions of the world.
Her main goal was to record exactly how global warming affects the lives of these people.
At the end of these four years of traveling to various parts of the planet and constantly taking pictures, Helena chose a total of 42 black-and-white Polaroid photos and put together a booklet entitled “Meltdown.”
It is expected that this booklet will now be sent to the Rio+20 Earth Summit, so as to make sure that the world leaders gathered there do not forget about the fact that climate change first and foremost takes its toll on the defenseless.
