Focused on disappearing rivers and floodplains in Iceland as well as rare Arctic ecosystems, "Vanishing Worlds" aims to encourage a global discussion on how to best protect some of the planet's rarest and most threatened ecosystems.

The collaboration of Paul Nicklen and Chris Burkard unites fine art with a mission of environmental conservation to highlight the beauty of these isolated landscapes, as well as the challenges they face due to climate change and industrial development.
