Dan Mead and Sally Eagle are bringing their exhibit “Ultimate Antarctica” to the Tremaine Gallery at Salisbury School, where it will be on display from January 6 to March 1, 2014. A reception for the photographers will be held on Friday, January 10 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
This exhibit of large color photographs taken in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula provides a stunning look at the wildlife and ecology of some of the most remote, desolate and pristine environments remaining on earth. The landscapes shaped by the forces of wind, water and extreme cold, and the wildlife that exist there, offer an invitation to contemplate the power and resilience in this part of our world. Images of barren beaches, vast glaciers, and windswept shorelines provide a unique opportunity to see how the animals and birds live, nest and propagate under incredibly harsh circumstances. These photographs convey the sense of awe that we should all have for our planet.
International award winners Mead and Eagle have been photographing for more that thirty-five years, and their travels have taken them places many of us never see. Their images offer a unique and compelling vision of the planet that takes us beyond our everyday lives, and in this case, to the “end” of the world.
The Tremaine Gallery is located in the Centennial Building at Salisbury School, 251 Canaan Road, Salisbury, CT. Gallery hours for this exhibit are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (when school is in session).
