B&W iceberg IV, photographed in Greenland
Rime of the ancient mariner
I have always felt a personal connection to nature. It is a soulful experience, one pursued in solitude but filled with joy and peace. I recently developed a body of work focused on icebergs. There is an urgency to photograph them given the alarming rate at which they are melting. This iceberg appears as if it is an ancient ship sailing out of the mist into the present and reminded me of the ship in Rime of the ancient mariner.
