Chris Burkard, filmaker says, “I recently teamed up with Icebreaker to take a single photograph that represented humans relationship with nature. We went to the epic Tasman Lake, New Zealand in the Mount Cook National Park. It was crazy to learn that this beautiful lake was incredibly new, only 40 years old. It was the literal open wound of a melting glacier. We have the potential to reduce our impact, but it starts with changing our perspective and moving to natural alternatives. We need people to re-examine their perceptions and individual choices… particularly the things that might not be so obvious.”
