The Schaefer Collection



"The North has always struck me as a state conferred upon the mind by the imagination rather than a geographical location verified by a compass or astrolabe. It is a state of mind subsumed by a directional pull more universal than any instrument can measure, like the allure Mary Shelley's monster experiences when, trekking across the frozen northland, he metabolized into fiery resolve to create a new light for surviving and surpassing the old darkness of humanity."
