We just got back from our recent DPD workshop in Greenland’s Scoresbysund, the largest and fastest moving ice fiord system in the world.

Seth Resnick continued to explore his fascination with abstraction, getting in close and finding optical illusions.

During our 2018 DPD Greenland Workshop I made many exposures for several series but focussed on finishing images for one series in particular – Constellation.

My series Constellation marries the heavens and earth by showing the lands and the stars that lie behind, around, and within us. Carl Sagan reminds us “We’re all star stuff.”

When we gaze at the heavens we see where we came from and what we were, where we are going and what we will be. When we gaze at the land we see where and what we are now. Contemplating both we embrace an expanded view of our place in the universe and ourselves.

To find our way we must first find us. These images encourage us to consider a longer wider view.

This is a selection of my top 12 images of 2016. This selection doesn’t reflect sales, publication, or activities on the web. It simply reflects my opinion. Click on the titles to find out more about each image.

Geography

While I visited most of the biomes in one year (all seven continents in 18 months), the images I released were drawn primarily from the artic and antarctic regions.

Process

Straight images from Antarctica were processed on location, mostly in Lightroom. Composite images were created in studio, mostly in Photoshop after launching from Lightroom. I date “straight” shots based on the date they were exposed and composites on the date they are completed.

Concepts

I focussed on a long-standing theme, creating symmetries drawn from the land to better reveal the spirit within. The final resolution has prompted me to remaster many related files made in 1996. I released multiple related series of studies, including a series of digitally rendered inkblots.

Magnificent Moment

There was big magic in 2016! In Antarctica there were moments of extreme quietude amid the lifting fogs at Black Head and the glassy reflections in Antarctica’s Plenneau Bay. We experienced the epically varied lands of New Zealand; in one day we moved from a waterfall strewn fiord, through a rainforest, up to a high arid plateau, and finally to the base of a glacier. Sublime light filled hours and hours, as we flew helicopters over Namibia’s Sossusvlei dune fields, which roll out to the Skeleton Coast. All of these adventures were long-held dreams come true.

It’s challenging to choose so few images from so many – but it’s insightful. Try selecting your own top 12 images. Try selecting the top 12 images of your favorite artist(s).

People in science, business, government, and military are all keeping their eye on the Arctic.

The rapid changes the Arctic is experiencing is one of the reasons photographing the region has been so high on my priority list.

The rapid changes Greenland is experiencing is one of the reasons photographing Greenland has been so high on my priority list.

Greenland has a huge impact on global climate and sea levels, like Antarctica.

Seth Resnick and I are organizing a new Arctic (Iceland, Greenland, and Spitsbergen) digital photography workshop/cruise during the end of August or early September 2012. Our itinerary will be similar to this voyage but customized to maximize photographic opportunities. Geothermals, glaciers, fjiords, icebergs, whales, walrus, and polar bear are only a few of the trip’s highlights. Creativity, exposure, workflow, and post-processing are only a few of the topics presented.

Our Antarctica 2011 digital photography workshop sold out fast!

You can be among the first to reserve a space and get your choice of cabins by requesting to be placed on our pre-announce list.
