How to be Alone by Nich McElroy.
Between 2008 and 2010 I spent my summers walking in the Chugach and Talkeetna ranges in south-central Alaska. Alpine tundra, glacial valleys, bad weather, mountain huts. We would get sopping wet and stay up talking to keep warm. For the two years I worked on How to be alone I guarded my time walking in the mountains; I would carry around a 6×7 camera the size of a cinderblock and try to depict the big, indifferent, beautiful things I was seeing. I didn’t bring the photographs back to fetishize solitude or wilderness, but to remind myself that I had found sufficient space to shut-up, look and listen.
