Photographer Anze Osterman Captures Life On Marble Island In Alaska

It doesn’t get much more off-the-grid than this, but it’s exactly why one of its only residents chose to move there.

Zach – a 27-year-old man born and raised in Japan – ventured to Marble Island in the far southern wilderness of Alaska six years ago in search of a simpler life, and certainly found it when he was taken in by a family of oyster farmers. Photographer Anze Osterman spent a month documenting Zach’s life on an island so remote that he sometimes goes six months without seeing a single human outside of the family.

“Deep in Southeast Alaska, surrounded by whales and bears, lies a remote island known as the Marble island. The story is a poetic journey through life of a young man who lives on the island. His name is Zach. 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.”

“Zach lives in a cabin on the island together with a family of oyster farmers and fishermen. He spends all of his days 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,” Anze Osterman wrote on her Instagram.

“Fishing, hunting, gardening, harvesting berries & mushrooms are the ways Zach gets his food in the remote Alaskan wilderness. This time we were fishing for dinner. He caught a rockfish, which is beside salmon and yellow eye the most common fish on his menu.”

This ‘SWAT’ Cat Has A Better Apartment Than Most People

A stray calico cat is the unofficial mascot of the Boston Police Department’s SWAT team. The members of the team have tried to convince her to come indoors, but she just won’t do it because she’s set in her ways. Instead they built her an awesome apartment that most people would be jealous of.

Officer Jamie Pietroski, a 15-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, stayed late after work for several nights painstakingly preparing Swat Cat’s new home.

Incredible Photos Of The Record Breaking Snowfall Night In Reykjavik, Iceland

Icelandic photographer Gunnar Freyr woke up to the sound of a tree breaking in his garden and saw the heavy snowfall coming down. He grabbed his camera and ventured into the city centre to capture these fantastic photos of a magical night. Snow depth was measured at 51 cm at 9 am this morning in the capital which breaks the record of 48 cm in February in 1952. Only once has this been exceeded, in January of 1937 when snow was 55 cm.

The photographs were taken in Reykjavik between 3 and 5 am.

This Man Builds Gorgeous Custom House In 800 Year Old Cave

The days when humans lived in dark, damp and abandoned holes in Britain are, thankfully, long gone. But one former businessman has opted to return to underground living by building his dream home in a cave – in a bid to cure his Multiple Sclerosis.

h/t: dailymail

Angelo Mastropietro, 37, spent eight months single-handedly transforming the 800-year-old hobbit hole in the Wyre Forest in Worcestershire into a 21st century man cave, complete with running water, underfloor heating and even wi-fi.

The former recruitment boss was inspired to buy the cave after being diagnosed with MS at the age of 29, a catalyst which forced him to rethink his high-flying career and the stress and unhealthy lifestyle that came along with it.

“It’s in a beautiful location, it’s uplifting, it makes you feel good, it’s very relaxing. While you are a mile from the nearest pub or supermarket, you’re a thousand miles back in history.”


The father-of-two, who returned to Britain in 2010 after more than a decade living in Australia, first came across the cave in 1999 when he and some friends were forced to find shelter during a rainy bike ride.
