“Under-Documented” Photography by Paul Zizka

Paul Zizka’s journey is photographing the “under-documented” in the Canadian Rockies, the iceberg-laden seas off Greenland’s coast, and throughout the beautiful world in which we live.

His unique compositions have been featured in many publications, including National Geographic Adventure, Huffington Post, and Canadian Geographic, to mention a few.

Paul’s adventures have taken place on all seven continents and each of Canada’s provinces and territories. 

Curious Locals in the
Torngat Mountains

It is believed that his 1400-km unsupported double-crossing of Iceland on foot (2004), is the first to happen. He also completed a 1488-km crossing solo of the South Island of New Zealand (2007).

Methane Bubbles

Other destinations for his exploration have included Antarctica, Norway, Svalbard, Nepal, Greenland, the Caribbean, Niue, French Polynesia, Namibia, the Faroe Island, Baffin Island, and the Torngat Mountains.

Each year, Paul is the Photo Editor for Crowfood Media, Inc., where he curates the images for their publication, The Canadian Rockies Annual

Mount Vaux
Yoho National Park

I believe there is in all human beings a deep connection with the natural environment. In these times, however, that link is often obscured by the capitalistic, hectic, materialistic, and anthropocentric nature of our societies. My hope is that through my photography, people will rediscover the precious connection they have with the wonders of our planet.
