Adrift is a photographic body of work by Melbourne based artist Jesse Boyd-Reid. Created during a recent residency program onboard a traditional Barquentine sailing vessel in the high Arctic, Boyd-Reid has continued to develop his interest in the body and the intimacy of its relationship with the space it occupies. 

Adrift highlights the ways in which we are inseparable from the spaces we inhabit, forever entwined in their histories and stories.

This collection of portraits, landscapes and still lives provides a contemplative monograph of life in one of the most remote communities of the world. 

The transformative act of swimming in this glacial landscape, for example, requires not only logistics and pluck, but also a watchful armed guide providing protection from polar bears. These works reflect upon the resilience and adaptability required to survive in this remote and unforgiving landscape as environmental changes escalate.
