Jussi Grznar captured this moment in the middle of Pemberton backcountry after a 40-mile snowmobile ride with Andrew Burns and the rest of the crew. This was Andrew’s first descent on this glacier. As he jumped off the 50ft drop the avalanche caught up with him. Even though completely blinded with snow Andrew rode away safely at the bottom. To see more of Grznar’s work click here.

Since 2002, Robert B. Haas has focused exclusively on aerial photography in a quest to capture the grandeur of all Earth’s large landmasses from the air. “Through the Eyes of the Vikings,” released today, is the third book in his collection. Hass, who previously transformed vistas of African and Latin American landscapes and cityscapes, has focused his lens on the regions that transect the Arctic Circle—Alaska, northern Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Finland—which he photographed over a three-year period. This book tells a story about an endangered, raw region whose astonishing beauty is worth preserving for its own sake, and whose precarious fate will impact the entire planet.

Yassine Ouhilal captures surfer Cheyne Cottrell riding an icy wave amidst the snow-capped mountains of Norway’s Arctic. This shot was taken around 11 PM due to the high latitude and prevailing midnight sun.
Photographer Yassine Ouhilal, known as “Yazzy,” recently traveled to Norway’s Arctic Circle for a surfing expedition feature with Outside magazine. In Norway, Yazzy was also able to shoot for Eddie Bauer, who sponsored the trip. He produced a documentary while traveling that is posted on YouTube, and which has been seen in 200 countries.

Today we present nine images by Canadian photographer Adam Makarenko from his recent Northern Highways & Rockcuts project. Influenced by science and nature, Makarenko creates a vivid tableau vivant through miniatures, which he photographs into poignant visual narratives concerned with human intervention in nature. Makarenko won the Magenta Foundation’s Bright Spark Award in 2008.
Below the images, Makarenko and PDN’s Darren Ching discuss working with miniatures and the inspiration for this project.
