The Antarctic: From the Circle to the Pole

Author(s): Stuart Klipper

Photography

Antarctica is a place of extremes that remains largely unknown and infinitely fascinating. Stuart Klipper has travelled to the Antarctic six times in twenty years to photograph an astounding body of work. This volume offers a sweeping look at this majestic continent, which has lately become central to global climate change concerns. Shot in panoramic format - the only way to encompass a landscape that seems to stretch on forever - Klipper's work captures major features and surprising details: ships suspended in the frozen sea, glowing blue icebergs, vistas of endless snow, and troops of penguins. This volume's substantial size, panoramic shape, and unique vertical-opening case emphasize the grandeur of these austere and lovely photographs from the bottom of the world.
