On the quilt is a melodic, summary photograph of glacier ice by Justin Black . Right here’s the story behind the shot.
“Aboard the schooner Rembrandt van Rijn in Greenland’s huge Scoresbysund fjord system, our Visionary Wild expedition group got down to shore within the ship’s Zodiacs for a hike to a place overlooking the Rolige Brae Glacier. On the way in which, we got here throughout probably the most magnificent icebergs I’ve ever seen, composed nearly totally of historical deep-glacier ice. The daylight sparkled, bounced and refracted because it penetrated the varied fins, arches, horns and sides across the iceberg’s circumference, and our group went to work. Because the boats maneuvered, shutters clicked and exclamations of awe-struck incredulity have been heard; the deliberate hike was totally forgotten.
“This case was ultimate for the applying of subtractive composition. The best fantastic thing about the iceberg was not in its full type, nor its place relative to the fjord panorama, however in its particulars. The ice was a medium for the elegant play of sunshine. My co-instructor Chris Linder and I reminded our visitors that compositions can be outlined partly by the graphic components that they included within the body however, nearly extra importantly, by excluding picture-wrecking distractions corresponding to exceedingly shiny highlights or strongly discordant shapes. We took a cue from the ice—exquisitely sculpted by time, solar and seawater—and have been cautious in carving out our compositions like visible sculptors.”
