“I worked jigging for codfish in the Bering Sea and continued to return for work as a crabber for the next seven seasons. What lured me back though wasn’t only the money, but the curious and often masochistic realization of the American dream happening in the Aleutian Islands. Those who come here often possess a desire to escape the safety of home to work in an environment filled with risk and visual grandeur that is far from ordinary. In recent trips, I joined fisherman at sea aboard crabbers and trawlers, and on land documenting the surreal landscape of fishing culture that once captured my imagination as a young greenhorn. Aleutian Dreams is a collection of images from my journey through this wild and unforgiving frontier of Western Alaska.” --Corey Arnold
Charles A. Hartman Fine Art is excited to present Aleutian Dreams, an exhibition of stunning new work by world renowned photographer Corey Arnold. In this latest body of work Corey returns to Dutch Harbor, Alaska, documenting a world few of us will ever experience. Crab boats and trawlers, scavenging noble eagles and curious foxes, mountains of nets and crashing seas are all captured with an inquisitive earnestness and intellectual fascination that is as beautiful as it is compelling. The photographs that make up Aleutian Dreams are strong and subtle images of an otherworldly, essential way of life. This is Corey Arnold's fifth solo exhibition at Hartman Fine Art. It is not to be missed!
