Over the past seven years, Tina Freeman has photographed the wetlands of Louisiana and the glacial landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctica. In Lamentations, Freeman pairs images from these desparate regions in a series of diptychs that function as stories about climate change, ecological balance, and the connectedness of disparate landscapes.
