The Berkshire Now gallery space features extraordinary images of Antarctica by photographer Shaun O’Boyle.
Breathtaking landscapes of glaciers, mountains, and ocean are displayed alongside images of seals and penguins in their element, all taken during a seven-week photography project in Antarctica. Berkshire-based photographer Shaun O’Boyle was selected to participate in the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers program; from October to December 2015 he took a series of pictures that now comprise Portraits of Place in Antarctica. Some of the most fascinating pictures in the exhibition are of architecture — the historic huts built over 100 years ago during the first explorations of the continent, and present day science stations and field camps.
