Back to Base Camp by Karin Bos

BACK TO BASE CAMP by Karin Bos

In 2015 I travelled to Iceland and the series 'Back to Base Camp' is inspired by the overwhelming landscapes I came across during this journey.
Back to Base Camp is first presented at CODA Museum in Apeldoorn (the Netherlands) as part of the exhibition 'Expedition Nature'.
It is on view from November 5th 2017 until March 4th 2018.
