I can only answer personally that I think my intention of looking at this thing as a living creature, as a being unto itself, an ancient being, and honoring that it has had a life that we will never comprehend. So, when I photograph it, that’s what I’m feeling and thinking about, and hopefully, if I do it right, you will feel some of that, too. I stepped foot onto the sea ice and started walking.
