The show will include history, geography and climate of the region, along with what is happening there today. The images you will see are focused on the wildlife and landscapes, which exist there, and, in many cases, nowhere else.
My love of photography and nature goes back many years. Today my photography is concentrated on images of landscapes, wildlife, flowers and other natural subjects.
In 2006 I realized my long time dream of visiting all the seven continents on this planet. Of all the locations I have photographed, Antarctica and the Southern Ocean particularly captured my heart. To experience this remote area of the planet, along with numerous species which have adapted - and prospered - in this often hostile environment, is truly spiritual. Simply sitting down and watching a penguin colony for a little while is akin to meditation. One can see and hear virtually every aspect of life carried out all around you.
