[click "Play", Drew Ludwig talks with Susan about the Iceland trip]
Telluride's Ah Haa School for the Arts plans to stretch its wings and fly beyond the borders of our box canyon. An upcoming photography trek across Iceland next summer, departing July 21, is an example of another new direction.
The team leading the expedition includes Aaron Huey, a Seattle-based photographer, whose client base includes National Geographic magazines, The New Yorker, Smithsonian, The New York TImes and European rags. Heuy's current ongoing projects include the funerals of Afghan war vets, Sufism (mystic Islam), and a five-year documentary on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Huey's co-instructor is mountain guide Drew Ludwig, also a talented photographer.
Participants circumnavigate the country via Iceland's Ring Road, and backpack through the interior on an extended 10-day journey. During the three-week trip, there will be opportunities to document traditional lifestyles, dramatic landscapes, and exotic wildlife. Family members and friends get to follow along via photoblog updates. A photo exhibition follows upon the group's return.
