Antarctica remains largely unknown and infinitely fascinating.
Stuart Klipper has traveled to Antarctica six times in twenty
years to photograph this astounding body of work, offering
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.
