Martin Hartley photographs

English photographer Martin captured these images on the Arctic March expedition in 2014 when, together with climate campaigner and adventurer Bernice Notenboom, we attempted to ski from North Pole to Canada. Difficult conditions thwarted this attempt about half way to Canada but in so do I made a lifelong friend. In 2011 I had successfully guided the same trip, taking 39 days to reach the coast of Ellesmere Island.

Martin and I first met in northern Norway when he was commissioned to photograph a training trip for Walking With The Wounded's 2013 South Pole Allied Challenge.
