Apaflo.com is a display of Barrow Alaska in
photographs by Floyd Davidson.
This site documents Barrow life, the
surroundings, the inside and outside, buildings,
roads, the seasons, the people, the plants,
birds, ocean and tundra are the subject.
This is not a "Fine Arts Photograph" site,
restricted to only wonderfully beautiful and
technically perfect images. There is no
hesitation to post a pretty bad photograph if it
is the only one available of a particular
subject! And while technical details are
available for most of the images, only a few are
segregated along patterns pertaining to
photography, as opposed to life. There are
sections about different subjects, but not about
different kinds of photography
The above has an unfortunate effect, because by
the nature of Barrow, the photography here is
also an extremely interesting and often unique
example of Street Photography in particular, but
also of Event Photography, Bird Photography,
Wildlife Photography, Macro Photography, People
Photography and other genres. A viewer won't
find commentary on those individually though,
and will need to know what they are seeking.
In the end, it is simple: This is Barrow Alaska!
Footnote: "apaflo" is actually Ap'a Flo. Ap'a
is Yup'ik Eskimo for grandfather. In Inupiaq,
spoken in Barrow, that would be spelled aapa.
Thirty years of Yup'ik grandchildren, and now
two great-grandchildren are the etymology of
apaflo.com by name.
