To get back to the soul of his work, photographer Jim Brandenburg sets himself the task of taking only one photograph each day for the ninety days of fall. The landscape he chooses is his home – the boreal forest of northern Minnesota. “I had set myself a challenge: that for ninety days between the autumnal equinox and winter solstice I would make only one photograph a day. There would be no second exposure, no second chance.” The images that result are quietly provoking. In a wonderful progression, we follow him through the first snowfall into the depths of winter – an amazing journey.

The entire photographic collection appeared in the November 1997 issue of National Geographic magazine as North Woods Journal. This story was— according to editor William Allen — “the most photographs the magazine has ever published in one feature in its entire history…and by the way, using the least amount of film.”


Jim Brandenburg traveled the globe as a photographer with National Geographic magazine for over 3 decades. He has received a multitude of prestigious national and international honors for his work. The National Press Photographer’s Association (NPPA) twice named him Magazine Photographer of the Year for his National Geographic magazine work. He was named Kodak Wildlife Photographer of the Year by BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Natural History Museum–London, and was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA) . Brandenburg was the recipient of the World Achievement Award from the United Nations Environmental Programme in Stockholm, Sweden, in recognition of his using nature photography to raise public awareness for the environment.

Four of Jim Brandenburg’s images were recently chosen for inclusion in a unique collection that represents the “40 most important nature photographs of all time.” The images were chosen by members of the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) a fellowship of the world's top professional conservation photographers and editors.
