Lantern At the Bottom of the World

This extraordinary new voyage is like a blockbuster film—the star is the seventh continent. And the co-stars are the big ice of remote West Antarctica, where we are sure to set foot on ice where no other humans ever have; the prolific wildlife and impressive ice shelf of the Ross Sea region; and the sub-Antarctic islands of New Zealand and Australia, World Heritage sites for the thousands of seals and millions of penguins here, including huge colonies of king penguins and the endemic royal penguin.This is wildness and wildlife at its finest. Following in the footsteps of Scott, Ross, Amundsen and Shackleton, perhaps only a few thousand people in the history of the planet have ever made this voyage. And the opportunity we’re offering is too good to pass up. Join us, and you might be able to legitimately paraphrase the iconic line: “To boldly go where no man has gone before.”

Narwhals, Icebergs, and the Extreme Landscapes of Greenland

In Greenland, I felt temperatures up to 50 percent warmer than historical norms, witnessed receding glaciers, and walked on vast expanses full of slush. What we do in our ephemeral lives has eternal impact on the planet and on future generations. We are all connected. Thus, how we live impacts Greenland. And what happens to Greenland ultimately happens to all of us.

Taking to the skies to capture Greenland from above, Roger Fishman created the largest fine art collection of the island’s extreme remote beauty, entitled Ephemeral & Eternal: Greenland. Collaborating with scientists from various prestigious American universities and hoping to activate the public by unveiling the magnificence of the land, Roger’s photographs reveal what is at stake and what we must work to preserve for the future of our planet.

Photographer Captures the Disappearing Beauty of Greenland’s Icebergs

On a recent trip to Greenland, landscape photographer Albert Dros had the opportunity to sail through the waters around Disko Bay. Located on the west coast of the country, the area is filled with wildlife like walruses, seals, and whales. They frolic in the icy waters that are dotted with icebergs. While Dros was in the area, he had a chance to experience the changing dynamic of Greenland’s environment and shoot some incredible imagery.
