Since 2008, Jean Gaumy has been working on various scientific missions in the Arctic, being embedded on the scientific sailing ship Le Vagabond as well as in several BB Polar international expeditions.
These missions were in majority linked to the study of climate change and of the effects of global warming on the area. They gave Jean Gaumy exceptional accesses to remote parts of the Arctic.
Parallel to his documentary work with the scientists, Jean Gaumy pursued his long term personal work on landscapes and territories. The result is an intimate and contemplative vision of the Arctic.
