The Child Of Marble By Anze Osterman

Having a strong interest in the relationship between humans and nature, the Slovenian photographer Anze Østerman, searches for almost forgotten places and stories that make you want to go out and explore the world.

After taking us around the ‘Arctic Circle‘ Osterman invites us to follow him on a not less exciting adventure deep into the Southeast of Alaska. Surrounded by whales and bears lies a remote island. It is a place where nature can be your best friend who loves and nourishes you, but it can also take you to the depths of the ocean in a second…

“He lives in a cabin on the island together with a family of oyster farmers and fishermen.”“The story is a poetic journey through life of a young man who lives on the island. Born and raised in Japan, the road took him to Alaska, to the wilderness, with no roads or signal, where he found a completely new world. He lives in a cabin on the island together with a family of oyster farmers and fishermen. Most of his days he spends in the arms of the cold ocean, working on a floating oyster farm, fishing and exploring the area. Sometimes half a year goes by without him seeing a town or other people besides the family on the island. The ocean presents the biggest danger to him, but also the doorway to this beautiful world which he explores on a small skiff together with his dog.”
