The Antarctic is at once stark and stunning, wild and wondrous; a frozen frontier of sculptured blue ice, crystal water, seals, whales and penguins. Early in 2013 these two intrepid photographers embarked on a trip to the Antarctic Peninsula, the northern most part of mainland Antarctica. There they turned their keen eyes and lenses on this timeless land and have produced an exhibition that provides a unique and personal perspective of a remote and beautiful place that most of us will only ever dream about.
You can come along and view the breathtaking works on display at Societe Food and Wine Bar, where you can also enjoy coffee, an all day breakfast, lunch or dinner, along with the free exhibition.
