Exactly one year ago today I embarked on a trip that was transformational. I visited Iceland and arctic Scandinavia. One of the most memorable nights of my life was spent camped alone at the foot of the Fjallsjökull glacier in eastern Iceland. I arrived there at dusk and had just enough time to pitch a tent and finish a sandwich before dark. The next morning I awoke to a frozen lagoon bathed in the light of the early morning sunrise. The magic began to happen as the sun climbed in the sky and the ice on the surface of the lagoon began to melt. As it melted it began to crack and groan as if it were telling me it's story. I spent the morning walking, and listening, and photographing this wonderful place.
I have the chance to share these pictures, and the stories that go with them, this fall at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon. The exhibit opens on August 28, 2016 and runs through November 6, 2016 with an artists forum and reception on September 18th. I hope to see you there!
