I have been really enjoying the work of Corey Arnold lately, found via Humble Arts Foundation's Solo Show gallery. As a means of escaping suburban Southern California, Corey headed north to become a fisherman and elude the monotony of suburban life.
"Articness is a group of images from the far North that I've compiled over the past 3 years. These are outtakes from the visual journal of my life as a fisherman in the Bering Sea, and my wanderings around Artic Norway during the off season. With these photographs, I strive to inspire the adventure of escaping common life."
Arnold's photographs have achieved what he intended. When I look at his work, I am tempted to leave my comfortable routine behind and set out to explore places that I've only seen in photographs.
