April 2 - 29, 2011
Glen Helen Atrium Gallery is showing “Views of Antarctica” Photography by John Higdon, from April 2 - 29, 2011. This exhibition opens a wide lens onto the icy, enigmatic continent of Antarctica. The public is invited to meet the photographer at the opening reception on Sunday, April 3rd from 2 - 4 pm. At 3:30 pm Higdon will give a free slide presentation and talk in the Glen Helen Building Auditorium.
This show is a feast of rarely seen images of Antarctica made by photographer John Higdon. Working as a merchant marine, Higdon spent 10 years driving an icebreaker across Antarctic waters, capturing diverse images of everything from ships to sea life, science stations, coastlines and icebergs with his lens. This exhibition is a tour you won’t want to miss!
