Cinematic legend fell in love with the 12-isle atoll in the French Polynesia while filming Mutiny On The Bounty in 1962 and bought it in 1967 for $200,000. He then proceeded to convert it into a small village and later a hotel. He used this place to escape from the mess of Hollywood under the pseudonym of Jim Ferguson. He nurtured both the biodiversity and culture of the island, using only renewable energy and living in a beach hut. Following the actor’s passing in 2004 the private island resort was transformed into a luxury eco hotel and spa - The Brando - in 2014. It is absolutely adored by honeymooners and keen travelers now.
Christian Åslund, a Swedish photojournalist who works with Greenpeace, has made a simple experiment. He took photos of glaciers in Svalbard, Norway from the Norwegian Polar Institute, which were taken almost a century ago and juxtaposed them with his own photos of the same places, which were taken in 2002. He's using the photo series to promote #MyClimateAction, a National Geographic campaign encouraging discussion about climate change, and there could be no better argument in their favor than these comparisons.
