Transmute,
from the series Arctic Fiction

These photos are part of a larger series titled Arctic Fiction. This series was produced during an artist residency in Svalbard, Norway in the Arctic Circle. The series documents the changing and dynamic landscape of the Arctic, one that is quickly and forever altered due to climate change. For me, going to the arctic and photographing the land felt like I was witnessing a changing history. The Arctic that I saw will not be the same arctic that future generations will see. The title Arctic Fictionreflects how many people treat the natural environment as far away, almost fictional places that they don’t need to protect or look after. Athough we utterly depend on them for our own survival, we often feel detached from our environmental surroundings.

This particular photograph was taken from a tall ship around the western side of Svalbard Island, where I was with twenty seven other artists. While I was there, I kept thinking about how the way I see the arctic now, will not be the same as how future generations will, and I felt a strong need to document it. This photo was taken when we stopped in at a fjord, and came across this glacier with a large mountain behind it. Large ice particles floated in the water and it sounded like thunder when the glacier would be calving. I took this photo with a medium format hasselblad camera. We traveled for two weeks on the boat and each glacier we would encounter left us in awe of our surroundings, and how magnificent and unique the natural world around us is. When we arrived at the glacier some of us took a zodiac in for a closer look. The scale of how large it is can be difficult to really show in a photograph. But the glacier towered over us like a large city building.
