In a few short weeks I will be heading back to Iceland for my summer workshops under the spectacular midnight sun. I will then travel north of the Arctic circle for three back-to-back expeditions to Svalbard and Greenland. In the meantime, I have been busy catching up on office paperwork and processing some of my recent photographs from Xinjiang in the remote north west of China. It has taken me several weeks to fully digest this fascinating trip and I do hope to make more posts and share more images over the coming weeks and months. As well as still images we also shot a lot of video footage during our trip and my friend Antony and I hope to piece this together into a short travelogue that will help us share our experience.
The Ghost City was one of the more spectacular locations for photography we visited during our time in Xinjiang and we photographed in this remarkable landscape for two days spending most of our time working at sunset and sunrise. This photograph was taken just after sunset on top of one of the many compressed sand outcroppings.
