Hostilities on the Korean peninsula were suspended 65 years ago, but the war never formally ended. Thousands of North and South Koreans cannot reunite or even communicate with family. Photographer and filmmaker Laura Elizabeth Pohl delves into the trauma in her traveling photo exhibit A Long Separation. Then, photographer Helen Glazer found inspiration in stark snow-covered tundra. She toured as part the ‘Antarctic Artists and Writers’ program of the National Science Foundation. 

This is a special Fall Pledge combination rebroadcast, links to full interviews can be found here, for Pohl and here, for Glazer.

Helen Glazer's instagram images can be found here.
