The Los Angeles Times has posted an audio slideshow by Robert Gauthier featuring photographs of the Alaskan Arctic, along with commentary by various residents. The images document the changing environment of the Seward Peninsula, whose coast lies along the Bering Strait. In two and a half minutes, the slideshow touches on topics such as the indigenous and European origins of the Seward Peninsula’s residents, the effect of increased noise from shipping on the local whale population in Kotzebue, and the epic scale of the Alaskan wilderness.
