A perspective shattered by climate change: a world photographed through the ice formed and broken by a polar vortex. Both gossamer veil and barrier between the worlds, where portals reveal, static separates, and archways beckon ever deeper and beyond.

What started as fascination with the play of light and ice during frigid farm chores is burgeoning into a fascinating, fun, and heartfelt photographic exploration! The underlying premise is chilling in every sense of the word:  the frequent polar vortices we experience are symptoms of the warming arctic that births these weather patterns.  Counterintuitive, but then so are many truths.  While humanity may be the cause of global warming, we can also be the cure.  I can only hope this series fosters conversation leading to action supporting responsible stewardship and mitigating climate change. My region is currently embroiled in a battle against the Danish company, Rockwool, which hides their dirty manufacturing behind greenwashed verbiage.  If they are allowed to go into production, they will, among other environmental travesties, be burning 91 tons of coal PER DAY (across the street from an elementary school no less), contributing globally to continued climate change and changing forever our environmental and internal landscapes.  While my words join the frontlines in city and county meetings, my heart finds expression and refuge in images.  A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this series will go to Jefferson County Vision, the nonprofit seeking to steward our region into a clean and thriving future.

A chronicle of the battle against continued environmental degradation, but also a metaphor of the creative journey, slowed and distorted through chronic disease, but never abandoned. The dizzyingly glorious world at stake. The promise of a way through. Of homecoming.

  Does the hawk dive after the fish? Or the salmon burst towards the sky?Sometimes the truth can not be seen directly, but only experienced when we look, in a moment as ice, askance….

The journey always beckons, however much we wish to curl up on the couch as the earth spins through space. Sometimes the way is clear.  Such is the Path through Copper Mountain, buoyed by a Lowland Lullaby….
