"Arctic Adventures in Iceland and Greenland"
On Wednesday, May 2, the Assabet Valley Camera Club (AVCC) is pleased to host Eric
Vickery, a Massachusetts-based adventure and travel photographer, who will share his
passion for the outdoors and the environment by presenting a multi-media show on the
incredible beauty of Iceland and Greenland as well as the global importance of these Arctic
Eric has had the good fortune to join photographers from ten other countries on a winter visit
to the south coast of Iceland to experience ice caves, auroras and glaciers. Photographic
experiences on this trip enabled him to work with and contribute to The Arctic Arts Project
whose mission is to educate, inspire and provide perspective on the kinetic evolution of the
Arctic. The Project's goal is to present a visual body of work that will reveal a unique
perspective of climate change in the Arctic. For more information, visit their website at
Continuing his association with The Arctic Arts Project, Eric journeyed to Scoresby Sound in
East Greenland recently with another photographic team on the Schooner Donna Wood to
experience the raw existence of the remote landscapes and Inuit settlements. To complement
the considerable experience and talent of this photographic team, Eric provided support for
aerial perspective with drone video and still photography. The scale and beauty of these
regions is truly beyond words and better shared visually.
Vickery, an active member in the Camera Club of Central New England, has presented this
program in his native town of Lunenburg as well as other locations in Central Massachusetts.
Eric's passion for travel and adventure go hand and hand with his love of photography. To

The presentation is free and open to the general public. AVCC welcomes anyone interested
in learning more about photography as a visual art and its practical application as a science.
Meetings are held at 7:30 PM on the first and third Wednesday of each month from

Street. For more information check out the AVCC website at assabetvalleycc.com
