  Audubon Sharon - "Land & People of the Arctic"

Audubon Sharon will be hosting an Illustrated Presentation called “Land & People of the Arctic, Personal Experiences of an Expedition Photographer” with local photographer Joseph Meehan on Friday, March 23rd from 7:00-8:00pm at the Sharon Audubon Center, located on Route 4 in Sharon, CT. Light refreshments will be served.

During the last decade, Joseph Meehan served as expedition and documentary photographer in the early years of a groundbreaking study by Dr. Martin Nweeia to determine the function of the extraordinary tusk of the Arctic Narwhal. For centuries, myths and misconceptions have surrounded the purpose of this completely unique structure. The tusk is actually a one of a kind spiral shaped tooth most prominently erupting out of the jaws of males to lengths as much as eight feet thus earning the title, “Unicorn of the Sea”.


Meehan will take the audience on a visual journey recorded during three expeditions through the stunning landscapes of the high Canadian Arctic, the western coastline of Greenland and out through ice fields to that country’s northern islands. He will also show candid portraits of the Inuit hunters who were interviewed, often in their homes, for their knowledge of the Narwhal gained over lifetimes and passed down through generations. This includes those Inuit whom Meehan worked and lived with for periods of time. Meehan will explain what he learned about these Northern peoples, their unique world and its wildlife while recounting the challenges of photographing in less than ideal weather conditions.

A major exhibition, “Narwhal: Revealing an Arctic Legend,” containing the findings of Dr. Nweeia’s extensive research and some of Joseph Meehan’s photographs, will run until August 2019 at the Aquatic Hall of the Smithsonian Museum, in Washington DC. Dr. Nweeia’s scientific findings can be found at www.narwhal.org.

Joseph Meehan is a former professor who has taught at colleges & universities in the US, England and Asia. He left academia in 1989 to pursue a full time career as a professional photographer taking assignments for various magazines and international commercial clients. In addition, he also served as Technical Editor at Photo District News in New York City for 10 years, was the Editor of The Photography Yearbook in the UK and has written 25 books on photographic techniques.

The program is free, but a suggested donation of $5 to Audubon Sharon is appreciated.  Pre-registration is recommended, though not necessary. To register, call (860) 364-0520 x108.
