"Vitality Illuminated" is a giclée print inspired by the salmon runs taking place throughout Alaska over the course of the spawning season. The message "Vitality Illuminated" is written into the river among the salmon fiercely swimming upstream to simultaneously sustain their species and finish out their lives. The vitality these salmon both bring and represent is multi-layered and complex in its impact upon Alaska's environment, ecosystems and economy.
