Publisher's Comments

Antarctica remains largely unknown and infinitely fascinating. Stuart Klipper has traveled to Antarctica six times in twentyyears 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 formatthe only way to encompass a landscapethat seems to stretch on foreverKlipper'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.
