I traveled to Antarctica with the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers program from October -December 2015. My project was a photographic study of the architecture and landscapes of Antarctica. I’m interested in places which show their origins and history through architecture, infrastructure and the landscape, so I was very interested in how buildings and living space are adapted to the weather of Antarctica, and how settlements like science stations and field camps take shape in this extreme environment. It’s a place with little human history, a blank slate against which to measure our presence.
