Entrance in to the New Year a thaw is beginning in Colorado. Within this thaw is the anticipation of new beginnings. With each Earth turn a blank slate is created in my mind and in that the mindfulness in whats to come.
Where I find the greatest inspiration, the greatest rejuvenation, are the stark landscapes that reflect the blank spaces of the mind. I find myself lusting to wander within these ecosystems where others may think that nothing exists and finding hope in a the little intricacies of life that are created there. I am constantly mystified by the adaptation, the ingeniousness of nature, that creates life and beauty out of these marginal lands.
Australian artists Brooke Holm explored the northern most landscape in her exhibition 'Arctic.' In this series she captured the fragile and calm serenity that calls the arctic home. Holm shows this untouched oasis on film, yet though untouched it it evolving. With this series she hopes to raise awareness of to the arctic, of the mysteries in its existance we have yet to discover and of the changing climate and the impact on these lands.
I could get lost looking at these photos for hours, exploring all the details. Where there is nothing, anything is possible.
