Description or Artist's Statement
Morten Hilmer’s photographic practice was catalyzed by his two-year and two-month tour of Greenland, as a member of the Slædepatruljen Sirius (Sirius Sled Patrol), Denmark’s elite navy dog sled unit that patrols the coast of Greenland. This lecture will look at how that experience laid the groundwork for his photographic practice. Focusing on nature photography, Hilmer’s work has been featured by BBC Earth, and he is a freelance photographer for the World Wildlife Federation and a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers.
