Photo Notes: The myth of the North is tied to its unique geography – a territory vast, sparsely populated, fragile and sublime. Yet, with an estimated quarter of the world’s undiscovered energy resources and one of the most dramatically changing climatological conditions, the Arctic has become a site of significant economic and development speculation. The sensitivity of this context, and the urgency with which it must be addressed cannot be overstated. However, there is little evidence of a holistic vision of development in the North beyond economic efficiency and expediency. This image is from my series “The Arctic”, which attempts to document this complex region, and exhibit the complexities of modern development with traditional living patterns and fragile ecosystems, and cultivate a supportive dialogue for everyone involved.
