Looking back at 2019: Paulatuk

Here are some previously unshared photos from last summer. In July I had a unique opportunity to travel to Paulatuk, Northwest Territories with researchers from University of Lisbon and Natural Resources Canada. Their objective was to map the community and nearby sites along the coastline, mine - to photograph the process. Paulatuk is a fly-in community of roughly 260 people, located on Amundsen Gulf. Data collected during the drone surveys will allow to create high quality 3D models of the area. It will also be used as ground truthing data for analyzing satellite imagery. You can read more about the technical aspects of the mission here.  

Looking back at 2019: Warsaw

A small set of photos from a visit to my home city of Warsaw in January. I bought a Fuji X100F specifically for that trip (and as an everyday carry camera) and now I honestly don’t know how I lived without it. There are a billion detailed reviews of this camera on the internet so you can look it up if you’re curious. I can just say that for me it lives up to the hype. Although you can get amazing images from smartphones these days, I still like the idea of having a “real” camera on me, mainly because I am yet to see a smartphone that holds up to the winter cold in Northern Canada, and I hate dealing with touch screens in below zero temperatures. 

Ryszard Barylinski is a third-generation artisan brush maker. The brush shop on Poznanska street has been a fixture in Warsaw landscape since early 1950s. I dropped by there to pick up a couple of shoe polishing brushes. I asked if I could take a few photos. We ended up talking about cameras, brushes, and the history of the family brush shop, established by Ryszard’s grandfather.
