New Work. 
Ancient Light // Kilpisjarvi, Finland

In September 2019, I participated in the Field Notes residency at the Bio Art Society in the sub-arctic region of Kilpisjarvi, Finland. You can see new images within my Ancient Light series here, and a series of blog posts on the full residency on Ewen Chardronnet's Makery page.

This residency was supported by a successful Crowdfunding campaign where I was able to sell books and prints. If you would still like to purchase a book or print you can do so, on my website.
