Esther Horvath

Hungary

Hungarian-born Esther Horvath is an award-winning photographer whose photojournalistic practice focuses on science and the environment. Since 2015 she’s dedicated her work to the polar regions, documenting scientific expeditions and researchers as they work to better understand the changing climate. Spending her days in near-total darkness and under threat from minus 45 degrees (and polar bears!) Esther hopes her work will raise awareness about the fragility of our planet by going behind the scenes of the climate data we’re presented by the media. Her work has been published in the likes of National Geographic, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and TIME Magazine, and she’s taken center stage in museums and auditoriums across the world.

The love that I have for the Arctic is so strong. It’s such a strong connection, which constantly entices me back again and again. I feel so much for this place, it’s like caring for a child.
