'Antarctic dreams' talk
Packed into a small ex-Russian spy ship, and accompanied by some of the region's top geologists and climate scientists, I immersed myself in this beautiful, thought provoking and precious wilderness. As well as capturing stunning images of the landscape and wildlife, I also retraced part of Shackleton's epic journey across South Georgia.
Antarctica has gripped our imagination for hundreds of years, and in this talk I explore why this very special place is still relevant today. It is a touchstone of environmental change and can tell us much about our past...and our future. Ice, climate, wildlife and personal sacrifice come together in this landscape which has inspired artists, scientists, explorers and naturalists for generations.
