Bio

Kerry is an award winning international photographer with a passion for the outdoors and the environment. His work has been published throughout the world in international media channels, public gallery exhibitions, and commercial and private collections.  Kerry’s published work, in 2015, garnished more than 4 million impressions worldwide. Additionally, Kerry has been a speaker/presenter at numerous international forums and conferences on climate change.

His unique vision for the Arctic Arts Project evolved while shooting in the foothills of Denali, Alaska where he captured a series of artistic images representing permafrost polygon hummocks and patterned ground that evoked a passionate global response from naturalists, scientists and artists alike. In recent presentations to high school educational communities in the United States, Kerry coined the phrase “To See Things Differently” in order to inspire students to look at things, in their own world, with question and conviction. This phrase has become the title of the Arctic Arts Project’s major exhibitions.

The exhibition To See Things Differently: The Visual Response to Change, recently completed an unprecedented 10 month run at The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. It was seen there by more than 65,000 people, including 10,000 elementary students and more than 2500 educators and scientists.
