A horrific event that would be the catalyst of a fascination that lives on today.
Guy Frederick was met with six days of 24-hour sunlight on his trip to Antarctica last December.
A man on a mission.
A mission to document what he called "the humanness" of this vast white landscape that borders one end of the earth.
Postcards to Antarctica and Postcards from Antarctica were two exhibitions that Frederick recently ran in Christchurch, displaying content he created down on the ice.
Cooped up inside Scott Base and its immediate environs, Frederick got to work photographing his surroundings.
