Alaska
Alaska (2014-) 

These landscape photographs were taken on my travels in Alaska between 2014 and 2018. Printed on washi paper with a delicate translucent structure, the series offers an ethereal view of a wilderness at the precipice.

This series is presented in sections beginning with Wrangell Narrows, followed by, Ketchikan, Resurrection Bay, Bird Point, Portage Glacier, Arctic Valley and Anchorage. A short statement introduces each place.

Wrangell Narrows, Alaska, 2018
The rare beauty of Wrangell Narrows Strait; a winding twenty-two mile channel between Mitkof Island and Kupreanof Island in the Alexander Archipelago in Southeast Alaska, is darkened only by the myriad dangers of navigating this body of water. Once in, there is no safe way to turn: remnants of failed voyages momentarily appear and disappear in the grey distance, dense fog muffling any sound beyond light slapping water and the hum of our vessel.
