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.”

DCN Video Pick: Everest – A Time Lapse Film – II by Elia Saikaly…

DCN Video Pick: Everest - A Time Lapse Film - II by Elia Saikaly // Experience the beauty of Mt. Everest at night in time-lapse. While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world. An in depth look behind the scenes: For more inspiring imagery visit Instagram: Contact: *all footage available for licensing* *All time-lapses available in 5+K resolution* Some technical breakdowns of this short time lapse film: •108 total time-lapses and set ups over two years in the Himalayas •44,069 still images created •Edited down to 26 shots, 1,896 stills or 2 mins and 18 seconds pending how you do the math That means 82 shots or 42,173 stills are on the cutting room floor! These time lapse Images were captured as high as 6200m (camp 2) above sea level on Mt. Everest. We slept at 6000m for three consecutive nights on the summit of Mt. Lobuche East waiting for a glimpse of Everest from that vantage point. Around 11pm on the 2nd night, the skies opened up and the top of the world revealed herself in all of her glory. No where else on the planet have I ever seen the Milky Way so clear, so vivid and so very much alive. It takes a great deal of discipline to stay up all night capturing the magic for the world to experience. Cameras freeze.Shutters freeze. Batteries freeze. Humans freeze. The high altitude environment is debilitating at best. Your body is taking a constant beating by the low levels of oxygen in the atmosphere. The higher you climb of course, the worse this becomes. And yet… this is heaven on Earth for me. This is my comfort zone. This is where I feel alive. This is where the combination of my love for imagery, astrophotography, storytelling and connection with the mountains all intersect. I toss logic out the window on clear nights and run all of my cameras until all batteries are exhausted, CF cards are filled and the sun re-emerges for yet another beautiful day. It’s my oxygen. It fuels me. Energizes me. And keeps me in a flow state. My tribute to Everest - In Time Lapse. Enjoy!
