Thanks to his friendship with Tom Campion, a tireless arctic champion, Dave Shreffler has photographed extensively in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Gates of the Arctic National Park, and the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska over seven extended visits to the Alaskan arctic since 2001. He will share his photographs from these iconic arctic places, followed by a question and answer session at an evening Studium Generale presentation, scheduled for May 15 at 7:00 pm in Peninsula College’s Little Theater.
His presentation will trace the arc of his transformation from naïve arctic adventurer to photographer to wilderness advocate. Shreffler will emphasize the importance of thinking beyond our own time. Join him for an exploration of what’s possible … in arctic light.
Shreffler is a restoration ecologist who has spent his professional career trying to protect and restore salmon and their ecosystems. He has lived on the Olympic Peninsula since 1990. His arctic photographs have been published in: Striking a Balance in America’s Western Arctic: The National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (2011); The Quiet World: Saving Alaska’s Wilderness Kingdom, 1879-1960 (2011); America’s Unknown Treasure: National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (2012); On Arctic Ground: Tracking Time Through Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve (2012); and We Are The Arctic (2016). His arctic images have also appeared in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. (2014); environmental group websites, brochures, and fact sheets; and private photo collections.
This event is free and open to the public.
