The Problem of the Wilderness
I went to Alaska for New Year with my friend Dan; we spent a week travelling North from Anchorage by rail, 4×4 & light aircraft. I took along my A7SII for the trip.
Towards the end of 2016 I desired a trip disconnected from technology & work, somewhere ‘into the wild’ that I could disconnect somewhat from life in London. After our Tens sunglasses (tens.co) campaign shoot in Mexico in December, I headed North to Vancouver and spent Christmas snowboarding. Alaska looked like the most logical stop after that for a week or so in the wilderness. The more (little) I researched and booked, I realised I should probably take a camera with me, but didn’t want to be inconvenienced by all the gear I usually travel with – FS7, 16mm kit etc. So just took the basics – instagram.com/p/BOm8XjQDs02.
The verse is from a book I found in our cabin (instagram.com/p/BO31pi9hiJp) that really resonated with the journey. Marshall was an environmental activist who wrote extensively about Alaska in the early 20th Century.
