Why Support Sea Ice Stories?

Note: Thanks to the generosity of many backers so far, this project has been funded enough to begin! Additional support will help me get home again.

Transportation and operation costs in the Canadian Arctic are astronomical, with average airfare alone exceeding $5,500 and unbelievably high costs of living. To make this project happen, I am asking for help. To contribute, you can purchase a print, make a donation, or email me to commission a piece of artwork. 

I am reaching out for support from people who believe in supporting the arts, photography, and Arctic issues. I am determined to make this project happen no matter what - and every contribution will make a huge difference. 

Thank you!

GOAL: $15,000

The above goal reflects the minimum necessary cover airfare, housing and food for two months, as well as the costs of gasoline, dog food, potential skidoo or firearm rentals, large-format color film, film developing, and scanning costs. This has been carefully calculated based on previous experience in the Canadian Arctic - a detailed budget can be provided upon request.
