Onne van der Wal will be presenting an image and video presentation of his last two extraordinary trips to Greenland.   In 2018 he had the pleasure of joining an owner on his 90 foot private yacht and exploring the West coast of Greenland from Ilulisat and around Disco Island.  Onne enjoyed the experience so much, he chartered an Icelandic based 65 foot steel ketch and gathered a group of seven keen photographers to bring along on his first high latitude workshop – this time on the East coast of Greenland, in and around Kulusuk and the Sermilik fjord.

Come to the Jamestown Arts Center on December 5th to see his amazing photography and share his passion for this stunning part of the world!
