One of our photographs was recently selected by jury for inclusion in the latest upcoming exhibit at the relatively new Vermont Photo Space gallery in Essex Junction, VT. Our photo, entitled, “Chacabuco” (and featured above), captures one of the last great sheep herds in Chilean’s Patagonia’s endangered Rio Baker watershed. The exhibit, entitled, “Managed Landscapes”, will be open to the public starting Sept 6, 2010. You can learn more about our experiences in this region, and the issues affecting it, at the following link on our main website – HERE. Also, If you are around Burlington on Friday, Sept 17, please consider stopping by the Vermont Photo Space for the opening reception of the exhibit, which will continue into early October.
We’re happy to report that one of our favorite images was recently selected for publication in the “Exposure” section of Outside Magazine’s June 2010 issue (page 10) – which is on newstands now. It’s an image that Emily and I captured while searching for an underground hot spring in the Myvatn geothermal area in north central Iceland last spring. Emily crawled down into this fissure to sniff out the spring, and we enjoyed some incredible time in its soothing, hot waters before heading out for an early evening ski tour on a nearby volcano. (Look below for an image taken inside the underground hot spring.)
Says Amy Silverman, Outside’s Associate Photo Editor, “When I’m looking for images that work for the Exposure section, one of the most popular sections of the magazine, I don’t know exactly what will work until I see it and it clicks. Brian and Emily sent me some of their work from Iceland and, when I saw the image we ended up using, I knew immediately that it would make a great Exposure. It was the shot that made me stop and say, “Wow! That’s amazing!!” It’s a beautiful photo but more than that it’s something you rarely see.”
There’s also a great story, penned by Patrick Symmes, in Outside’s June issue about the controversy surrounding the proposed damming of Chilean Patagonia’s Rio Baker Valley – a region which we have explored on our bikes, feet and skis over the years. Here’s a page on our website dedicated to our experiences in Patagonia’s Rio Baker region….LINK.
