“Introspective” began with the idea to photograph the arctic and sub-arctic regions of six different countries using some of the last remaining Kodak Aerochrome infrared film in existence. Due to political and economic pressures for development that are beginning to overrule environmental preservation, not to mention the effects of a warming climate, the Arctic, as we know it today, will soon be unrecognizable. My journey of roughly three months took many unexpected turns, including watching a father and son gut a seal in Greenland. Yet, the more zig-zagging around the world I did, the more it seemed everything was connected. “Introspective” became a personal Odyssey, one of searching for inner clarity by seeing and photographing the marvels of the natural world.
“The Tigers are Gone” is a journal based around a ten day motor-bike trip throughout northern Sri Lanka. My aim was to catalogue a place that is now welcoming peace, after being torn apart by war for a quarter century. I found myself encountering the emerging spirit of a people excited at the prospect of peace.
