Tomorrow I head back to Antarctica for another month, working as a photography guide and lecturer aboard the m/v Ocean Diamond with Quark Expeditions. Here's a stunning iceberg we observed earlier this season, at the Ukrainian Vernadsky Research Base on the Antarctic Peninsula. In 47 expeditions to the Polar Regions, I've seen a lot of icebergs, but this one stood out to me - the shape, the height (it was massive), and the dark clouds behind. What's more, the Ukrainians were amazing hosts and even opened their bar for us, where they serve home-made vodka.
Miriam, from Aleppo, Syria, near her new home in Ballangen, Northern Norway. A promising 4x5 film scan from a personal project I'm working on about refugees living above the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway. More soon!

Happy Aboriginal Day! Here's in memory of Peugatuk Ettuk, an Inuit elder and dear friend of mine who shared so much knowledge of the Arctic landscape. Arctic Bay, Nunavut, Canada, 2014.
