Antarctica | An Exploration Of Nature, Ice & Life says
Join Alasdair Turner for an exploration of Antarctica’s McMurdo Sound Region. From vast ice to the historic huts left behind by Scott and Shackleton to today’s sprawling base of buildings that make up the US McMurdo Station.

This is a photographic tour of an area unreachable to all but a handful of the world’s population, many of whom return year after year for research. Learn about the fragile ecosystems that make up the southernmost part of the Ross Sea and the science that is being done to understand them while enjoying this provoking and stark photographic experience.

Alasdair Turner is a Seattle-based adventure and documentary photographer who has worked for the US Antarctic Program for the last four seasons. In his field safety role he has traveled to many remote areas of McMurdo Sound with geologists, biologists, and astrophysicists. His work tell the story of scientific research in Antarctica through a lens imbued with stunning photographic imagery, big picture explanations, and even a little humor.
