'Endarctica,' is a short photographic journey I made into the Antarctic Peninsula in 2015. Beyond penguins, icebergs, and subzero temperatures, I was profoundly moved by the silence, the emptiness, the remoteness, the unfolding horizon of pure space. There I found a sense of the Origin in its purest form. The continent of Antarctic is surrounded by a circling oceanic current, which scientists call the 'Antarctic Convergence,' a current where the cold, northward-flowing Antarctic waters meet the relatively warmer waters of the subantarctic, creating a natural boundary from the rest of the biosphere. It separates climates and different forms of sea life, and even prevents pollution or human garbage from entering this arctic sanctuary. And when we little humans enter this sacred zone, it as though one enters into another dimension or reality, outside of space and time. Literally, as one is slowly cut off from communication to the rest of the world, he/she enters into a vast unknown, wherein over 25 million years of tectonic activity, of undulating tundric expansion and ablation, and untampered evolutionary wonder has formed one of the finest works of art bestowed by creation.
These are some of my personal impressions or moreso a short glimpse into a world beyond man and beyond time.
