ALIVE: Telling a Survival Story in Photographs. A Behind the Scenes with Kiliii Fish

This video is a behind the scenes look at the creation of the photographic story ALIVE, about survivors of a plane crash in wilderness Alaska.

Backstory: On March 15, 2013 two geologic researchers from Fairbanks, Alaska were flying over the interior when a flock of geese smashed their windshield and forced a crash-landing in the Yukon-Tanana Wilderness. The pilot managed to prevent a catastrophic landing but died from crash wounds, leaving a severely injured man and surviving woman alone in the vast wilderness region. With the onset of late-season cold front and a search area of tens of thousands of acres, there is little prospect of finding the crash site.

This is the photographic sequence that Kiliii Fish recently created. With the help of friend and art director Lindsey Watkins, Kiliii presents Alive— a story that’s impossible to capture in a documentary fashion, yet is heavily grounded in realism.
