arni_coraldo Happy belated new year ya'll! after a little holiday/ post election #instahiatus, i'm coming back alive and will soon be posting from the aleutian islands in alaska where i'm creating new personal work for upcoming exhibitions at @hartmanfineart and @richardhellergallery in april! these are my top 9 most liked images from 2016 all shot in either #zionnationalpark #yosemite or #joshuatree while on assignment for @natgeo . 2016 for me meant a sprained back and a badly sprained ankle, it was a year of dropping $25k worth of camera gear off a cliff in zion and severe disappointment in reality politics:) but it was also a year of love and road trips, new friends in the arctic and abroad, and my first @natgeo mag cover story -- a highlight of my last decade working with photography. thank you for all the support last year! in these surreal times, we all need to step up our creative game in 2017, build bridges and find ways to reveal truth in ways that humans of all stripes can digest. see you soon from the bering sea! #wildernextgen #natgeo #bestnine2016 #nationalpark #coreyarnold #roadtrip

arni_coraldo 02:00 april 2016. kivalina, alaska. i'm standing on frozen ocean looking back at the village. i'm imagining this place 100 years ago, before generators kept the village heated and lit and everyone relied on gasoline to move around. as a kid i fantasized about disappearing into the wilderness, living simply off the land. i chose photography as a path because so i had an excuse to escape and dip my toes into that idea from time to time. but now in such a short period, even the frontier has wifi. surreal... these are things i think about now that i'm locked to my home office for the next few weeks with a sprained ankle and dvt in my calf. moral of the story: don't take an international flight shortly after spraining your ankle without compression socks or you will not be able to explore remote places for many weeks. ------------------------------------------------------ please check out the nov issue of men's journal @mensjournal online www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #kivalina #alaska #inupiaq #inupiat #eskimo #inuit #aurora #northernlights #nordlys #power #electricity #globalwarming #arctic #heat #arcticcircle #seaice #kotzebuesound

arni_coraldo Walking on a frozen ocean is a surreal experience. i imagine all the sea creatures milling around below my feet, the seals shooting by from one breathing hole to the next... and wondering whether or not a polar bear is napping behind that next pressure ridge. when the wind blows hard onshore, the pressure the ice exerts on itself collapses upwards into these jagged barriers exposing thick blocks of blue sea ice. lovely to see, but the ridges create challenges for whalers attempting to tow their boats up to a mile out in search of an open lead. ---------------------------------------------------------please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #alaska #kivalina #eskimo #seaice #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #inupiat #climatechange #arctic #spring #ice #pressureridge #globalwarming #photooftheday #erosion @mensjournal

arni_coraldo Reppi was excited to share with us and his family gopro videos from hunting and fishing around kivalina over the years. wolves are valuable to the community for their fur and ideal as ruffs for the hoods of eskimo parkas. several houses in the village had wolf pelts hanging prominently outside from recent kills, a sort of status symbol among hunters. before you comment against wolf killing in this post, please read the story to gain perspective on modern eskimo life in the arctic in the nov issue of men's journal or online www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #alaska #kivalina #eskimo #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #inupiat #climatechange #arctic #spring #ice #globalwarming #photooftheday #erosion #hunting #wolf @mensjournal

arni_coraldo Some of the elders of kivalina keep dogs chained in their yard for protection from the little people. a quote from writer saki knafo in our story in @mensjournal ----spend enough time on the island and you'll hear about the inugaqalligauraq, a primitive race of superstrong little people said to be hiding in the alaskan bush, armed with bows and arrows, their bodies and minds uncorrupted by exposure to gasoline, pepsi, and reality tv. "the elders say when the world ends, when jesus comes, these little people will come back," one middle-aged woman told me. "and people have been seeing them around, here and there. --------------------------------------------------------- please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online at www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #alaska #kivalina #eskimo #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #inupiat #climatechange #arctic #spring #ice #globalwarming #photooftheday #erosion #husky #sleddog #littlepeople @mensjournal

arni_coraldo Moments after i first met 3year old claudia out playing alone on the streets of kivalina, a seemingly rabid husky trailing a long chain from its neck (obviously broken free) began mauling other sled dogs helplessly tied up outside their homes. claudia ran straight at the crazed dog yelling noooo! stop it!!!! she grabbed the husky's chain and wrestled it away from its bleeding victim until another passerby took over... calming the dog down. kids grow up fast in kivalina and their freedom to roam outside in sub zero temps at a young age makes them tougher then nails. claudia and her sister vanessa became my best buds over the those two weeks. --------------------------------------------------------- please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by @arni_coraldo #alaska #kivalina #eskimo #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #inupiat #climatechange #arctic #spring #ice #parka #globalwarming #photooftheday #erosion @mensjournal

arni_coraldo The only way to bring supplies to kivalina is by cargo plane. the icy runway hardly stands out from the frozen sea which spans in every direction. this load is heading to the single small grocery store in town. while locally hunted meat is the main source of nutrition for the village, packaged foods, candy and soda pop make up the majority of this shipment. --------------------------------------------------------- please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online at www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by @arni_coraldo #alaska #kivalina #eskimo #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #inupiat #climatechange #arctic #spring #ice #sugar #diet #airport #globalwarming @mensjournal

arni_coraldo Reppi and dolly took care of us during our stay in kivalina waiting for an ice lead to open up for whaling. every night a new chunk of animal appeared on the dinner table. tonight was caribou roast from winter hunting and muktuk (frozen bowhead whale skin and blubber) that was traded with relatives from barrow. seal oil is a staple on every table and used as a condiment to almost every meal. i'm so grateful to this beautiful family for sharing with us the intimacies of life inside their home. -------------------------------------------------------- please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #alaska #kivalina #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #climatechange #arctic #winter #inupiat #eskimo #muktuk #caribou #blubber #whale #dinner #hvalbiff @mensjournal #hvalfangst

arni_coraldo While the village was asleep, i slipped outside to make a night photo of the bowhead whale bones which stand as a monument to the last whale successfully harpooned and landed near kivalina 21years ago. and this is the moment that the most spectacular aurora i've ever seen erupted before me and filled the entire night sky with rapidly moving bands of green and purple light, dancing silently above the frozen tundra. ------------------------------------------------------- please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online now at www.mensjournal.com "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by corey arnold #alaska #kivalina #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #climatechange #arctic #winter #erosion @mensjournal #whale #whaling #aurora #nordlys #northernlights #night #eskimo

arni_coraldo Last spring, ice in the chukchi sea and kotzebue sound, just outside of kivalina, alaska was abnormally thin and created a dangerous scenario for the whale hunt. in order to reach the open leads where bowhead whales pass by, the ice must be thick enough to support the weight of a #snowgo and sled. we waited for weeks but the ice remained too unstable and so the village of kivalina and its inhabitants became the focus of my images. ---------------------------------------------------------please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by @arni_coraldo #alaska #kivalina #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #climatechange #arctic #winter #erosion @mensjournal #eskimo #thinice #ice #seaice #instagram @instagram

arni_coraldo The kivalina epiphany episcopal church is in many ways the foundation of this very religious community and one of the main social gathering places of the village. enoch adams jr., an inupiat eskimo, who doubles as a whaling captain is the highly respected priest, his message is powerful and often animated, offering hope and a message of love mixed with an apocalyptic warning that the end times are near... perhaps a metaphor for the warming weather in the arctic which threatens to wash kivalina into the sea. ---------------------------------------------------------please check out the nov issue of men's journal or online "the last whale hunt for a vanishing alaskan village" written by saki knafo with photos by @arni_coraldo #alaska #kivalina #whalehunt #arctic #alaskanative #iñupiaq #priest #church#episcopal #arctic #winter #erosion @mensjournal #eskimo #epiphany
