About this image

This photograph forms part of an on-going body of work exploring the high altitude, and extreme environments of our planet. My imagery focuses on the relationship between the vastness of nature and the tiny, fleeting presence of humankind in the landscape. Our place in the universe is fragile. If we are to survive as a species our perspective and relationship with our home planet must dramatically change.
