These are a selection from over a 1000 photographs produced over 2 1/2 months while living alone, in a tent, on the tundra west of Hudson Bay.
Each day I would set out walking in a particular direction. Along the way, I would stop and photograph. After 4 or 5 hours I would turn around and walk back. The next day I would shift my direction by roughly 5° and repeat the process.
The idea was to locate myself in an environment containing few, if any of what might be considered traditional pictorial markers – somewhere that I was unlikely to find any signs saying, “Kodak Picture Spot”. I wanted to see what could be done with it.
