As we transition from hot summer days to cold winter nights, we are reflecting on the splendours of the icy landscapes captured during Grahame Sydney’s journey to the Antarctic in November 2003, then again in October 2006 at the invitation of Antarctica New Zealand.
“I absolutely felt comfortable there, aesthetically. For someone like me who likes those skeletal things and absences and reductions, it was really beautiful.”
Although Grahame shoots digital images, he does not alter or edit them – “that’s when photographers play at being painters,” he says.
