Photographer Eirik Johnson has been to the ends of the Earth. And he’s got the pictures to prove it.
High in the Andes of Peru, an annual pilgrimage draws together tens of thousands of faithful observers, to dance and sing and honor the spirit of the sacred mountain. In the pine forests of Oregon, foragers hunt for mushrooms destined for auction in Tokyo. On the shores of the Arctic Ocean, the strange and whimsical cabins of a seasonal hunting camp stand against the extremes of the Arctic climate. Johnson’s camera has captured it all.
Join Atlas Obscura and photographer Eirik Johnson himself as he shares images, stories, and sounds from these and other long-term projects following the unique connections between the human and the natural world. During this hour-long, online experience, you’ll get to relive some of Johnson’s most unforgettable journeys, and take part in some of his recollections yourself.
