This past June I completed a residency aboard a Barquentine Ship through the fjords of Svalbard, located within 1333 kms of the North Pole. Spitsbergen, the main island of Svalbard, is host to stunning black and white mountains, hundred's of active glaciers and rich wildlife, all of which I was lucky to observe during my time North. We sailed some hard sea's, reached a latitude of 80.5 degrees North and I took over 4000 photographs which will inspire my work for years to come. Here is a peek into this magnificent landscape and the ice rubbing project I was developing on land.
