Stories are a strange thing. I often feel them in the distance before they materialize. For Ash, I knew there was something around navigation and the stars. Googling for inspiration, I soon found myself sorting through countless images of the North Star. The brightest star of the constellation Ursa Minor, it is very close to the north celestial pole, making it appear stationary in the night sky. For hundreds of years, venturing seafarers have been guided by its constant light. Polaris was the story. This was my first attempt to capture it.
