Colin DeWolfe’s Antarctica: Sailing Under the Midnight Sun is being featured at ViewPoint Gallery in Halifax through March 2. Most of the images are handmade prints from film. There will be an Artist Talk on February 16 from 2 to 3 p.m.

The artist explains, “Antarctica is the last unspoiled land on earth. It is a home to wildlife which largely knows no fear of humans. The experience of sailing on a tall ship to this pristine continent, where there is visibility for miles, the wildlife is at arm’s distance, and the vastness and harshness of the location is one I will never forget. Mountain and ocean landscapes are contrasted against the abstract shapes produced by icebergs as they melt and tip over, revealing smooth surfaces at odds with the rugged tops against mottled clouds or clear blue skies.”
