Sami Dreams Exhibit Catalog by Randall Hyman
A photographic and oral journey, the catalog is interactive with QR codes to online links on each page that allow readers to actually listen to each portrait subject speak directly to them.
Randall Hyman has traveled the globe on magazine assignments for nearly four decades covering natural history and travel topics from Northern Europe to South America to Asia to Africa. His photo essays and articles have appeared in Smithsonian, National Geographic Traveler, Discover, American History, The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, Huffington Post, Science, Wildlife Conservation, National Wildlife, British Heritage, and various National Geographic books.
As a 2013 Fulbright Scholar in Norway and guest of the Norwegian Polar Institute, he covered field science, resource development, and climate change in the Arctic for a number of organizations and publications. In 2015, he was the distinguished Josephine Patterson Albright Fellow of the Alicia Patterson Foundation, expanding on his coverage of Arctic climate change. In 2018 he photographed and produced this exhibit about the Sámi, northern Europe's only indigenous people, which began touring North America in 2019. He continues to focus on Arctic topics and lecture on polar climate change across the United States and Europe.
