Talor Stone is a professional landscape photographer and Ph.D. researcher whose work merges visual art with fact-based knowledge about Earth's vulnerable environments and cultures. For the last 4 years, Talor has specialized in pioneering academic research on the impacts of globalization and a changing climate on Greenland's rural communities. She has spent two summers in Greenland immersed in the local culture and landscape working to lay the foundation for the project that they share with us today.
Talor's photography is represented in galleries in New Orleans, LA and Carmel, CA. She works as an educator with Muench Workshops - the world's premier photography education organization - and is a contributor to the Arctic Arts Project - an organization dedicated to visually communicating the science of climate change.
