From the INTO THE ARCTIC Project
Grey skies surrounded us as the Zodiac bounced its way toward the shore. Through the fog I could see a few cabins dotted along a beach that has been used by the Inuit for generations. On this damp day, I could imagine the comfort these shelters offered against the elements. Looking back toward the ocean, I saw the mountain and its glacier being revealed as the breaking light kissed the sea. The scene and its story were just waiting to be painted.
