About this book

Southern Light: Images from Antarctica is a beautifully printed photographic journey, in both color and black-and-white, through the awe-inspiring landscapes of the frozen continent. Since 1990, wilderness photographer David Neilson has made repeated journeys to Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic, in a quest to capture the exquisite light of these southernmost lands. This oversized volume presents the spectacular results of his efforts: 130 color and 100 duotone plates portray the dramatic topography of the Antarctic Peninsula; the icebound expanses of East Antarctica; the Ross Sea region, which witnessed the heroic age of Antarctic exploration; and the sub-Antarctic islands of South Georgia and Macquarie, with their profusion of wildlife.

Many of the landscape photographs were taken with a large-format view camera, and seven of them are reproduced as panoramic gatefolds, showing the true vastness of this great southern realm. The images of wildlife, many of them remarkable close-ups, include emperor, king, Adelie, gentoo, chinstrap, royal and macaroni penguins; wandering, royal and grey-headed albatross; and crabeater and fur seals. In Southern Light: Images from Antarctica Neilson's photographs are accompanied by a narrative of his Antarctic journeys, essays on conservation and climate change, and five full-page maps.
