The Photo Society
Nick Cobbing has worked as a photojournalist for 20 years. He combines the skills of an artist and journalist to reveal character-driven stories about our changing environment. He has tackled stories that have their roots in science: disappearing sea ice, receding glaciers and ocean acidification. Published regularly in National Geographic, The Sunday Times Magazine and Geo, these stories inspire the reader to explore their role in the natural world, with all its contradictions and nuance.
He continues to make reportage from the frontline of climate change, adding to a body of work from The Arctic and Antarctica.
Cobbing’s work has won awards at World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year, PDN Annual, American Photography and has twice been nominated by the Prix Pictet prize. His photographs have been exhibited to the public and policy-makers in The Stockholm Parliament and Capitol Hill.
He is a contributing photographer to National Geographic Magazine and member of the Photo Society http://thephotosociety.org/
Cobbing lives in Stockholm and travels extensively across Scandinavia, often in Oslo and Tromsø. He works in Antarctica and The Arctic most years, often based in Longyearbyen between May and September.
