The Arctic is a land of elemental contrasts, a place of both sublime beauty and unforgiving harshness. From the heat and endless light of summer to the punishing cold and deep blue nights of winter, its great organic oneness has been admired and celebrated, as humans have sought to share an existence with, and exert an influence on, its lands and seas. In this photographic essay, John Bockstoce presents vivid images from four decades of sailing, researching, and photographing in Alaska and the North Pacific, the Canadian Arctic, and the North Atlantic. Bockstoce's photographs convey his passion for the stark solitude of land, sky, water, and ice, his admiration for the lives and livelihoods of the Arctic's inhabitants, and his fascination with the haunting traces of a fragile human presence in the Far North.
