Eric Vickery photography is pleased to announce the presentation of an Arctic Adventure of climate importance focus on Tuesday September 18, from 7:00- 9:00 at the Congregational Church of Christ 583 Main St. (Rte. 13) in Leominster, MA.
Spend the evening with Lunenburg, MA resident and photographer Eric Vickery who will be sharing his passion for the outdoors and environment by presenting a multi-media presentation on the incredible beauty and importance of the Arctic regions.
As an adventure and travel photographer, he had the good fortune to join photographers from ten other countries on a winter visit to the South coast of Iceland to experience ice caves, auroras and glaciers. Photographic experiences on this trip enabled working with and contributing to “The Artic Arts Project” whose mission is to inspire with a visual response to climate change and to see the world differently.
The winter expedition also laid groundwork for the Vickery family to return for a summer circumnavigation of the island and see its many unique wonders in the summer season and light of the midnight sun.
Continuing association with the Arctic Arts Project, Eric journeyed to Scoresby Sound in East Greenland recently with another photographic team on the Schooner “Donna Wood” to experience the raw existence of the remote landscapes and Inuit settlements. The scale and beauty of these regions is truly beyond words and better shared visually.
To complement the considerable experience and talent of this photographic team, Eric provided support for aerial perspective with drone video and still photography. This was above some unique mountain formations around which hundreds of glacial tongues that extend and calve into Scoresby Sound, and source the range of icebergs. Even seeing them up close and personal, with all their dynamic sounds and color, one cannot describe the scale and wonder of these melting giants.
Certainly seasonal changes occur, but it is with a combination of the art and science that we can begin to understand the important role these play in the stability and health of the region and planet. The intense beauty, immense scale and sense of wonder can be a motivator to think about how involved we will become in our stewardship of Arctic region and planet as globalization and politics also change in accelerating ways.
Please join us for this beautiful presentation about the importance the Arctic regions to the health of our planet and how we must become better stewards of it.
