With this ongoing series of black and white images, I have sought to interpret the Antarctic experience in all its haunting simplicity : An encounter with an elemental realm devoid of vegetation or habitation - without references of scale or perspective. A Topography of Absence that early Antarctic photographers would seek to grasp by placing human objects of reference in their compositions, but which I prefer to distill to its minimalist, often abstract essence.

The images are available as limited edition platinum prints
