Of all the things I collect, archive and otherwise save, how I haven’t kept Patagonia catalogs for the last few decades is inexplicable. Finally, a few years ago I started a file for the covers. This year’s holiday catalog is one of my all-time favorites. Shot in Norway by Lars Schneider, this dogsled cover image led me to the Schneider Outdoor Visions web site, deep in gorgeous portfolio photos and rich in engaging blog posts and compelling short films.
I love how one thing leads to another and am very happy to have become acquainted with the work of Lars and Katrin Schneider. The German duo based near Hamburg, Germany travels the world, often as a family with their infant son, to capture outdoor sport, adventure and the natural world at the most inspiring and beautiful. Lots to check out and follow at outdoor-visions.com.
