The Row to the Pole expedition was a world first attempt to journey by row boat to the 96′ Magnetic North Pole. It was so novel because of the changing conditions of summer Arctic sea ice. Due to a 30 year trend in sea ice degredation to was thought this this unique maritime voyage 700km north of Resolute Bay might be possible.
I was lucky enough to be selected as a reserve for the expedition due to my rowing experience in Ottawa and my science communication background.
Being based in Resolute Bay, Conwallis was an exciting photographic opportunity. First there was the unique Row to the Pole expedition and second a setting that is just so isolated with its unique flora and fauna.
