For centuries, Antarctica has captured the imagination of explorers, scientists and travelers. Its starkly beautiful landscape, extraordinary wildlife, and bitter climate are just the beginning of the wonders this amazing continent holds.
Wondrous Cold: An Antarctic Journey is an exhibition that features 50 color and black-and-white photographs taken by photographer Joan Myers over several trips to Antarctica. Her work juxtaposes highly detailed panoramas of Antarctica's beauty with scenes of its wildlife, people, and historic sites, and it is supplemented by her compelling personal stories of what she describes as the world’s "most hostile continent."
Wondrous Cold, an exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), has been made possible through the generous support of Quark Expeditions.
