A stunning print from photographer Gray Malin's Antarctica series. Hand-signed in pencil in the lower right corner and editioned in the lower left corner. Printed on museum-grade, ultra-smooth archival paper made by Canson Infinity in France.
Says Malin of this series, “Antarctica is the last true wilderness of our planet and it’s dramatically changing just as we are starting to recognize and understand its great significance. Journeying by boat from South America, I was drawn to the natural landscape of the glacier-covered continent as well as the formations of the freely floating icebergs. Using select items to provide contrast, this series captures two parallel worlds coming together and presents a larger message about the changing landscape of our world due to shifting climates.
The greatest challenge in creating this body of work was the unpredictable weather and erratic shifting ice. I witnessed million-year-old glaciers the size of skyscrapers break off the glacial shelves and disintegrate into the ocean. This series changed my perspective of our world and I hope its beauty will influence others for generations to come.”
