about

In this photographic essay, John Bockstoce presents vivid images from four decades of sailing, researching, and photographing in the Arctic. He has journeyed in Alaska and the North Pacific, the Canadian Arctic, and the North Atlantic. His photographs convey his passion for the stark solitude of land, sky, water, and ice, his admiration for the lives and livelihoods of the Arctic's inhabitants, and his fascination with the haunting traces of a fragile human presence in the Far North.

Editorial Reviews

"John Bockstoce is a great Arctic traveller in the earlier, harder sense of that term. He completed the long-sought Northwest Passage, a journey of unparalleled achievement. Starting in an Inuit skin boat at Nome, Alaska, he navigated eastward through ice-choked Canadian waters to the misty headlands of Holsteinsborg, West Greenland. He then sailed south along Labradors coast to New York. John is an outstanding photographer and author and a true northern voyager."James Houston, O.C.
