Antarctica, the white continent, is the harshest place on earth…the coldest, windiest, driest, most mountainous place on earth…truly a land of extremes.
Once again, environmental and fine art photographer, Holly Gordon, provides an intimate portrait of a remote region that few people ever visit.
A personal urgency to be in an extreme location when 1999 became 2000 propelled me to Antarctica. The ‘travel gods’ smiled as we sailed through the ‘Garden of Glaciers’ along the Antarctic Peninsula. Our ship gently nudged its way into an iceberg so we could touch the melting ice. The frozen landscape resonated with a purity of light I never saw before.
