The heart of this photoset was to create and capture Alaska’s winter. To do that I’ve gone into sub-zero temps, crossed frozen lakes, and avoided avalanches. The physical effort I put into many of these photos makes them really special to me. There have been disappointments and seriously exciting moments throughout this project. Weather in Alaska is rarely predictable and often is unfavorable for photography. Despite the challenges this project has resulted in some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I look forward to what comes next for me here in The Last Frontier. Our summers receive almost 24-hour sunlight which makes for a different world for photography.
It still blows my mind that I’ve gotten to photograph the Aurora Borealis and a frozen ocean in a place so far North. I never expected my photography journey to go this far. It’s an honor to document this, and I’m thrilled to share this final project with you all. I hope it inspires you.
