In November 2020, I received an email from a lady in Michigan, in the United States. She’d just had a new baby, named Sage, and she wanted to find a photograph of sagebrush in the bedroom of the new family member’s bedroom.
Photographing trees and forests – I always find this difficult. How to make any sense of the beautiful organic chaos without just re-creating something in a dull, or cliched way? How to express the feeling of being out in the woods to someone who doesn’t know the place you’ve been?

Here’s a photo I made from a Greenpeace helicopter over Petermann Glacier in remote Northwestern Greenland in 2009 during a Greenpeace campaign to look at how climate change was affecting Greenland’s outlet glaciers, before the infamous Copenhagen climate meeting. Those are meltpools on the floating tongue of the Glacier, and the black blobs are cryoconite, deposits of rock, soil, soot, and other matter that collects on ice, then melts its way down. The 80km long, 20km wide floating tongue of Petermann Glacier currently accounts for about 10% of the output of ice from Greenland’s Ice Cap.
