Event description

Description

Greenland is an icon of landscape wonders and photographic possibilities for any photographer serious about travel, unique experiences and fine art expression. The pristine Arctic light, the monolithic icebergs and the colourfully dotted communities offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience of ecological and indigenous cultural exploration in one of the most remote areas of the world.

Come join reknowned Master Artist, David Burdeny, and multiple international Award-Winning Photographer, John Kosmopoulos, for a 7 day adventure in Western Greenland.

We will be staying in the only 4-star Hotel in the heart of Ilulissat, Arctic Hotel, and explore many of the most well-recognized areas of this pristine area by private boat while also exploring the land for some visually-stunning vistas.

Instructor Biographies

David Burdeny graduated with a Masters in Architecture and Interior Design and spent the early part of his career practicing in his field before establishing himself as a photographer. Burdeny translates his intimate appreciation for the structure, details and metaphorical value of space into sublime observations on how the contemporary world is still pregnant with mystery and potential. His early work of square-format black and white images rendered space in stark, elemental terms. The spare landscapes seemed modeled to serve as liminal spaces - as thresholds and portals and points of departure that lead the viewer to a complex intimacy with the expressive force of empirical awareness. In subsequent series, Burdeny has explored both opulent and austere interior scenes that use the sensuality of colour to full effect. Whether focused on ordinary spaces or iconic settings, Burdeny's photographs occupy an artistic middle ground between the physical and the atmospheric, the concrete and the spiritual, the actual and the idealized. They represent not strictly what he found but his personal experience of these enigmatic and luminous locations.

Burdeny has featured his photographic series in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US and throughout Europe. His work has also been widely published - including most recently Casa Vogue, The Guardian, The Corriere Dela Sera and the Moscow Times - and has been recognized with multiple International Photography Awards. In 2016, David was selected as International Nature Photographer of the Year for his series Salt.

David Burdeny lives in Delta, B.C. and works from his studio in Vancouver.


John Kosmopoulos is a multiple international award-winning photographer who embodies an “eclectic aesthetic fine art” (EAFA) philosophy of photography. He specializes in black and white and muted colour metallics photography. His work has been represented, published and exhibited in several international interviews, magazines, promotions, galleries, billboards and film. As an educator in both psychology and photography, he also conducts workshops around the world.

Kosmopoulos is always in search of an artistic enlightenment through the practice of an insightful imagination to fulfill his photographic vision as an artist. His signature images capture the complexity of beauty across multiple subjects and translate them back to the viewer with a felt aesthetic and visual sophistication that is symbolic, thematic and cinematic.

John Kosmopoulos, like his namesake, is a true citizen of the world. He lives with his family in the great city of Toronto, Canada.
