ARLES, ARCTIC, ARTBOUND!
A wonderful week in Arles for Les Rencontres de la Photographie festival – basically Cannes for photography, but lasting all summer. My exhibition It's a Mess Without You, winner of The British Journal of Photography's OpenWalls Arles award, continues at Galerie Huit thru Sept 26. Check out this lovely BJP feature published opening week. 🇫🇷

Next up: The Arctic Circle, a 15-day Artist and Scientist Residency aboard a Barkentine (square-rigged) tall ship. Originally scheduled for 2020, the Antigua sails from Svalbard October 2!
Alongside my photographic projects, I'll be highlighting the environmental threat of industrial-scale overfishing to produce fish oil dietary supplements, and letting folks know that plant-derived Omega-3 products offer consumers a readily available alternative. "Don't kill the krill!"

Finally, for my most literate friends, High & Dry presents our latest dispatch on KCET's Artbound. The story chronicles the formation of the Alabama Hills National Scenic Area and associated challenges to balance diverse land use interests with indigenous management traditions.
