Cristian Barnett: Life on the Line
Life on the Line celebrates the variety of existence in the circumpolar Arctic, in the face of overwhelming environmental and cultural change. Over a number of years, photographer Cristian Barnett has journeyed to the Arctic Circle, an invisible line of latitude 66 degrees and 33 minutes north of the Equator. The line intersects eight countries and is home to a rich diversity of peoples for whom the sun never sets in high summer, nor rises in deepest winter. This exhibition is drawn from his book Life on the Line, recently published by Polarworld and on sale in the Museum shop. All the photographs were taken on film within thirty-five miles of the Arctic Circle.
