In Akureyri in northern Iceland you can find the main offices of the IASC, the International Arctic Science Committee. IASC is a non-governmental, international scientific organisation committed to pursue a mission of encouraging and facilitating cooperation in all aspects of Arctic research, in all countries engaged in Arctic research and in all areas of the Arctic region.

For my project Touch base, arctic solargraphy I worked closely with the main office of IASC in order to find people and locations that could be assisting me to create images of arctic science stations. Even though the IASC is not a science station it did seem fitting to include their office in Akureyri as a recording location in the library of images I was after. On site, I was assisted by none other than the Executive Secretary at the time, Allen Pope.

If you buy a fine art print or limited edition of this image, 10% of the profit will be donated to APECS. This is an organisation which supports early career scientists in their research. Many members of APECS helped me in creating the images in the Touch base project. We all depend on future science. By donating some of my earnings I can do something back to support them.
