Photography Talk: Antarctica - Travels at the End of the WorldTuesday November 27, 2018
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Talented photographer Barry Pell will return with a fascinating talk about his visit to Antarctica. He will bring his colorful and educational slides for our audience to enjoy and learn more about this unique part of the planet. Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, driest place on earth. Two-thirds of all our planet's fresh water is locked up there in the form of ice in a continent twice the size of Australia. The last continent to be understood, it is a harsh and unforgiving environment that challenged and took the lives of many early explorers. Although an ice sheet covers 99 perecent of the land, the exposed areas along the coast nourish a wealth of tiny plants and sea creatures which in turn support the world's greatest concentrations of wildlife in the sea, on land, and in the air. The lecturer, Barry Pell, traveled by ship to Antarcitca for two weeks in January 2017. Based on his travels on the sea and excursions onto the land, he will discuss and show his photography of this most magnificent and unique continent.
Barry Pell is a world traveler and photojournalist. He has traveled widely over nearly five decades, visiting and documenting landscapes and cultures in 165 countries. Mr. Pell has also lived and traveled in China, Eastern Europe, North Africa and South America. He currently lectures on international cultures at schools, universities and institutions in the Boston area.
