Both maths teacher and photographer Kent Mearig invites us to discover his photographs taken in the Mendehall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska.

Kent Mearig: “I am seeking to share, through photography and writing, the love I have for God and a small piece of the love He has for the world. I endeavor to become ever more deliberate in letting God be my vision, and He has rewarded me in advance through the rich beauty that surrounds me both in the natural world and in my personal life. Living in Juneau, Alaska for nearly twenty years, my way of thinking and seeing has been molded by the incomparable grandeur of the Tongass National Forest and the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield. The Mendenhall Glacier is a place I have built a relationship with over the years in much the same way you might develop affection for a faithful dog. It continues to inspire my artwork and point my eyes to its amazingly creative Designer. A teacher by profession, I love to share ideas and information. More importantly I hope to spark young people’s desire to seek knowledge and understanding more passionately. That goal carries over into my photography, where ideally my interpretations of the world can cause viewers to reflect on the significance of the landscape and of ourselves. Peace.”
