UAF Frozen Lenses Photography Club presents...Circumpolar
Frozen Lenses is pleased to announce our statewide juried photography exhibition, Circumpolar. For many, the word “polar” conjures images of a volatile and extreme environment: isolated, wild and dangerous. However, some see these cautionary overtones as an invitation. Regardless of whether people come to escape the busy life of the city, test their grit in the face of the unknown or to simply experience the breathtaking beauty of a land largely untouched, one thing is for certain: the lure of the north is unrelenting, beckoning to adventure-seekers and lone wolves, alike. Frozen Lenses would like to see what it is that calls to you. Show us your vision of life, circumpolar.
