Since 1996, professional photographers Mary Frische and Tom Collopy have concentrated their efforts on capturing images of Alaska. The incredible beauty and diversity of Alaskan landscapes, flora and fauna have inspired them to advocate for the conservation and preservation of this wild, North American frontier.
In 2005, Mary and Tom began collaborating with National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska to produce static and travelling exhibits that showcase this extraordinary place. This partnership has resulted in 5 major exhibits as well as smaller displays in the airports at Cold Bay and Unalaska and Homer. Each exhibit has reconfirmed the need to retain these places as unique and necessary for understanding the place of humans in the natural world.
