“Largely, what I was trying to suss out was ‘our’ idea of ‘frontier and wilderness’ in contrast with all the oil and resource development that happens in this area of the world. (…) And, to some extent, I was trying to navigate what Alaska, and Alaska mythology, meant to me, personally.” (Interview from adn magazine)

The Last Road North – a visual story of the people and landscape of Alaska’s Dalton Highway

“I’ve always wanted to make a contemporary portrait of Alaska (…) The road system within Alaska is so limited, so it seemed logical that it was a place to explore. And once I got up there, it turned into something completely else-so different from anything that I’d seen before. It became kind of an obsession, with or without the camera.” (Interview from GOOD Magazine)

“The road served as a physical and psychological line between wilderness and progress; when I ran out of road west, I went north.” (Interview from It’s Nice That)
