Auyuittuq National Park, Baffin Island

“Auyuittuq” is the Inuktitut word meaning “The Land That Never Melts”. A national park full of ancient ice which carved out the largest granite walls in the world. A place that took thousands of years to form, melting before our eyes. The arctic circle is warming at a rate four times quicker than the rest of the world. Glaciers in Auyuittuq National Park that used to flow thousands of feet of elevation are receding so quickly that soon they will no longer be seen from the valley floors below. My goal with these images is to document the amazing, ever changing landscapes of our world before they are gone and bring awareness to these special, fading places. | (970)316-1956
