Tipper Gore began her photography in the early 1970s and soon became a part-time photographer for the Nashville Tennessean. After moving to Washington she freelanced for the Washington Post, the Washington Star and various trade organizations. She inspired the book Homeless in America and photographed for The Way Home, books combining her passions for social advocacy and photography. 


In September 2007, Al and I visited Bishop Glacier, part of the Lillooet Icefield in the Pacific Ranges of Coast Mountains in southern British Columbia, near Vancouver. The Pacific Ranges are some of the largest coastal temperate icefields in the world—and they are breathtaking. They are also shocking first-hand evidence of what I’ve seen in slideshows and heard in dinner table conversations, from experts, scientists, policy makers, and leaders from around the world—that the increase in the earth’s temperature due to global warming is severely affecting the planet’s ice. From the Andes to the Alps, from Mount Kilimanjaro to Mount Fuji, our majestic rivers of ice are in danger of disappearing in this century. Icecaps like these serve the important function of feeding rivers and lakes; they are lifeblood of surrounding ecosystems—the wildlife and vegetation, but also people who live nearby.
