Arctic Beginnings

Anna Taugher

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. 

Thaw

Scientific conservationists from the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered a frozen box containing 22 nitrate negatives documenting the life of explorers on the South Pole in 1915. These negatives were carefully thawed to reveal images never seen before from this expedition.

As the winter solstice passes and the Earth rotates in to its seasonal thawing, what other artifacts are out there to discover?

Death to the Palms

On the road from Santo Domingo to Samaná there is stretch with many miles of oil palmplantations on each side of the highway. Within this corridor there is a smaller section, itself quite large, of nothing but dead oil palms.
When oil palms grow past a certain age, they become less fertile and provide fewer nuts. At that time they are culled, making way for a new generation of saplings. Since sawing the trees is too arduous, the palms are instead denied water and fed chemicals to dry them.
Of all the ways to die, the thirst of a tree is the slowest.
