"I think over again my small adventures, | My fears, | Those small ones that seemed so big, | For all the vital things | I had to get and to reach; | And yet there is only one great thing, | The only thing, | To live to see the great day that dawns | And the light that fills the world." The emotions awakened by this beautiful poem of an anonymous 19th century Inuit author; how would you express them photographically? Your work should merge the harshness of icy, cold environment with the blessing of life that such an ambience yet offers. Use the above poem to align the elements in your impression. PLEASE NOTE: Ignoring the Rules will cause disqualification.
