A plug for my aunt’s book of Antarctica photographs!


This from the Wall Street Journal:

Most travelers will never visit Antarctica—and even if they do, they likely won’t see it in this way. Artist Diane Tuft traveled there in 2012 on a National Science Foundation grant to document the effects of ozone depletion on Antarctica’s light. Her gorgeous results are collected in the new book “Gondwana: Images of an Ancient Land.” This is the natural world abstracted—snow sculpted by the wind, folding upon itself; shapes that might be boulders or grains of sediment, depending on where the photographer stood. Though they may feel fresh, many of Ms. Tuft’s shots capture eons-old formations, such as jewel-like air bubbles that were frozen into a lake thousands of years ago. $95, assouline.com
