British Photographer Spent 13 Years Documenting Climate Change

A Lake District photographer has amassed the world's largest single collection of climate change pictures during an epic 13-year journey.

Ashley Cooper, 54, travelled to all seven continents, from the Inuit communities of the Arctic to the beautiful coral atoll islands of the Pacific Ocean.

Along the way he faced arrest by the Chinese Army, who forced him to delete every picture from his camera; came close to falling down a crevasse on the Greenland ice sheet; and narrowly avoided an avalanche in the Himalayas.
