Ben Goldfarb and Paul Colangelo

While exploring Alaska ("Rich Beyond Measure"), writer Ben Goldfarb and documentary photographer Paul Colangelo were inspired by Bristol Bay’s people. “I’m struck by [their] extraordinary generosity—with visitors and each other,” says Goldfarb. “It’s heartening to hear crusty old captains waxing poetic about the importance of environmental activism.” Colangelo agrees: “They have an unshakeable confidence in their ability to continue protecting the bay for future generations.” A member of the International League of Conservation Photographers, Vancouver-based Colangelo has been published in National Geographic News and Orion. Goldfarb has written for Scientific American and is a correspondent for High Country News.
