The left image is converted to B&W from a 35mm slide that i shot on a snowboard trip to Haines years ago - one of those trips that impressed the hell out of me. Jeremy Jones, Axel, Jonas, McAlister, those dudes blew my mind. I was photo editing Transworld at the time & thought that perhaps i had 'seen it all' - once i flew over those lines & saw them from the heli, i knew that this was a whole new world.
The right image is even older - I took it on medium format transparency film on a Mamiya 645.
I had a friend working with sled dogs in Montana & stopped by on a road trip from/to somewhere.
