For Your Weekend Pleasure and Viewing
Many of you know Josh Holko as a contributor this site. He’s a close friend, and I have had the chance to do photography with Josh in Antarctica. Like myself, he enjoys the polar regions. Essentially I am a cold weather person. I leave for Iceland on Tuesday will return for a few weeks then off to Greenland. Josh is the same way. We just like the cold. No beaches for us.
Anyone who’s been to either the north or south polar regions know what I mean when I say “a visit there will change you.” Well, Josh takes it to the extreme. I shared with you an article Melrakki – A Book Review about the work Josh did photograph the Arctic Fox. It’s an incredible book and I highly recommend it. Now, Josh has completed a project photographing the Polar Bear, “Ghost Of The Arctic”.
It’s a hot summer—at least where I am in Indianapolis. Hopefully, this exquisite short 6-minute film will help cool you off wherever you are. I highly recommend you set the play settings to the highest resolution possible with your computer and go to full-screen mode and enjoy this video. You can read more about the making of the film on Josh’s Blog.
Ghosts Of The Arctic
The product of more than two years of planning, Ghosts of the Arctic was filmed exclusively in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard in the depths of Winter. It is my hope that the film will impart some of the haunting beauty of this incredibly precious and endangered polar wilderness; as well as give you some insight into my life as a Polar photographer. I hope you will take six minutes out of your day, set your display to full screen, turn off the lights, crank up the volume, and allow Ghosts of the Arctic to transport you away to one of the world’s most spectacular polar regions; in it’s rarely seen winter veil. Please Enjoy.
