In her series ‘Aialik’, Acacia Johnson explores northern environments, wilderness, and the human relationship to nature. The images present a mysterious, ethereal world of water and mist inhabited solely by women. Photographed throughout the course of a summer in Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park, Aialik captures the dreamlike quality that Acacia Johnson finds so prevalent in northern places.
I suffer from life and from other people. I can’t look at reality face to face. Even the sun discourages and depresses me. Only at night and all alone, withdrawn, forgotten and lost, with no connection to anything real or useful - only then do I find myself and feel comforted.
— Fernando Pessoa, The Book Of Disquiet (via forlornes)
