Playing in the Dark

About Me

I am "Aurora" Dora Redman, I relocated from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to Alaska in 2001 and have been chasing and photographing Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) ever since. I never heard about the Northern Lights before I moved to Alaska. The first time I saw them it was love at first sight. That was it! From there on I knew what I wanted to do, I wanted to share the Auroras with the world and show them to everyone who doesn't have the opportunity to see the Northern lights. That's what I have been doing since.

My images can be seen here on the website, in many Lodges in Alaska and at my gallery, Aurora Dora, in downtown Talkeetna, Alaska (Main Street & Talkeetna Spur Road).
