Brussels, Belgium: The work of renowned Italian photojournalist and conservationist Luca Bracali will be featured in a special exhibition April 10-12 at the European Parliament in Brussels.

Marco Affronte, Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from Italy organized the exhibition with the assistance of geologist Anna Balzarini to ensure continued attention by colleagues on critical issues of climate change affecting the arctic. Affronte is with the Greens–European Free Alliance and studied natural sciences at the University of Bologna. European Parliament Members continue to debate environmental issues facing the arctic. Last month, members rejected an all-out arctic drilling ban, but embraced an article in the non-binding resolution to ban oil and gas exploration in “icy waters.”

According to NASA, the Arctic has been warming about twice as fast as the global average, with sea ice has been shrinking about 40% less than its summertime levels 35 years ago.

“For me it is very satisfying to exhibit inside the European Parliament and I thank Marco Affronte for the opportunity to do so,” said Bracali. “But I am even more appreciative of his personal commitment to what I believe is a noble cause and the only tangible thing that truly belongs to all of us: our planet, which we all have the moral and civil duty to safeguard and protect.”

Bracali began sounding the warning call about global environmental issues and shrinking ice about 10 years ago and has been working to document and educate about fragile and susceptible arctic environments ever since, from photographing starving polar bears in Canada to documenting rapidly melting glaciers in Iceland.

The exhibition will be visible April 10-12 on the third floor, ASP building D, in the heart of the Brussels Parliament. Of the 20 images to be displayed in Brussels, seven will be left as a gift by Bracali. The works may also be seen online at
