It has been several years now that I have worked on my second Freedom to Roam project. During the project I had the incredible chance to focus a lot of my energy on the Alaskan Arctic. Through the project I was able to document areas in great depth for months. For me the Arctic has such a draw, because it is such a vast open landscape that has very little human presence. Many places are true wilderness areas.
Besides Alaska I had the chance to travel to several other arctic locations throughout Canada. I had the secret wish to sometime do a project that would allow me to spend a lot more time in different Arctic and Sub-Arctic locations. There is just so much drama up north. From the winter skies filled with the Aurora Borealis, to the eternal sun of summer. From desolate frozen landscapes where polar bears thrive even in the midst of winter to the arctic tundra in summer which is teaming with life with the bodies of hundreds of thousands of Caribou and migratory birds.
It looks like there is a very good chance that this dream of expanding my work in the arctic dramatically may come true this year. I would be focusing 150% of my energy shooting locations between Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Svalbard. Together with my publisher Braided River books we have been talking about the possibility to collaborate with a fantastic partner to create a book on the Arctic. This partnership would allow us to reach a very broad general public and give insights into Arctic ecosystems and the threat they are facing due to global warming. This is specially important during a time, where vast part of the population is questioning the role humans play in the climate change crises.
So please stay tuned and check in for updates. We should know for sure here in a couple o days. As I am counting on this to go through, I have already continues my work in the Alaskan Arctic this year and am catching a plane to Svalbard, high up in the European Arctic, in a few hours. So if this goes through, you should be able to follow me around to some of the most spectacular locations in the circumpolar arctic.
Even though I have continued my work on F2R – B2B this year already, we would be pushing the book and the project out one more year, as we do not want to cut the documentation of some of important missing locations short.
