  Since 2010, I have had the opportunity to travel to polar and subpolar regions, including Antarctica, Iceland, Patagonia, and Greenland. I have captured large rock formations carved by eons of surf and wind, heroic and majestic icebergs floating to sea, smaller floating crystals resembling remote celestial bodies, giant natural mirrors, and abstract faceted-light-and-ice patterns. These scenes are often so exotic they may look manipulated, but the locations and subjects themselves are unique and otherworldly, removed from our usual experience.
