Louise Murray has been a professional photojournalist for fifteen years and her work has appeared in many publications worldwide. She leads expeditions to the high north for Arctic Kingdom Marine Expeditions, helping filmmakers and professional photographers achieve their goals safely in this challenging environment. Working both above and below the waters of the Arctic Ocean, Louise has worked with many documentary and wildlife film crews, including National Geographic and the BBC.

In this simple exhibition of photographs, 'Melt Down: The Changing Arctic', Louise attempts to highlight the dramatic effects of global warming, felt so keenly in the polar world. 'Climate change is happening right now and having a disproportionate impact on the fragile north', she says, ' and I am sad to see changes every year'.
