When I look back it’s clear to me now that the seeds of this project were sown a long time ago. It wasn’t until I stood on Antarctica that they took root, though, and the inspiration for this project was born.
Walt Whitman said “The sun and stars that float in the open air. The apple sloped earth and we upon it, surely the drift of them is something grand.”
That’s how it felt to be surrounded by open air, ice and penguins. I began shooting with the widest lens I had to convey the massive scale of my surroundings.
Inspired by my experience on Antarctica I wondered if I could emulate that feeling at home. We look down so often and walk, bowed and hurried, often deep in thought or on our phone.
What do you see when you look toward the horizon nearest you? What's at the edge of your sky?
