photo-eye Bookstore Project Space presents Magda Biernat’s Adrift. Recipient of CENTER’s 2016 Director’s Choice award, this body of work is a personal commentary on the parallel effects of global climate change at opposite ends of the Earth.

Adrift is a series that uses visual language as a means of polar comparison. Biernat pairs photographs of Antarctic icebergs and empty Iñupiat Eskimo hunting huts, whose shapes and volumes echo one another. The juror Louise Clements, Artistic Director of QUAD & FORMAT festivals writes "Magda Biernat's award winning series Adrift is concerned with the changes in the Polar ice, focused on the Arctic and Antarctic. In both of these environments the culture, land, architecture and geography is changing rapidly. By combining stunning images that study icebergs and Eskimo hunting structures she draws our attention to the effects of climate change and its impact on cultural identity.”


Biernat will be in attendance at the opening reception signing copies of her beautiful book of this series Adrift.
