No Global Warming in this Book
The Antarctic is photographed by Stuart Klipper with contributing authors Guy Guthridge, William Fox, and Steve Pyne. Klipper traveled to the continent six times over twenty years to create this work of art. Many of the trips were conducted through the National Science Foundation's Antarctic Artists and Writers Program.
The book refers to Klipper as "a participant-observer" who has captured images that affect those who see them in different ways, and, hopefully, their unique reactions to the world.
There are more than 100 "plates" in the book and each one is astounding. The photographer says that there is almost always a "straight line going across my frame" that captures the blurred line between horizon and and sky.
Antarctic is truly an amazing piece of work. Any of us who desires to see this part of the world and preserve its beauty should add this book to their collection.
