New photographic exhibition: Elysium Antarctic Visual Epic


'Elysium Antarctic Visual Epic - Adelie Penguins'    Australian National Maritime Museum

A stunning new photographic exhibition – Elysium Antarctic Visual Epic – that documents the last great wilderness on planet Earth will open at Australian National Maritime Museum on 13 April 2013.

Elysium features over 70 spectacular images from the 2010 expedition, led by award-winning photographer Michael Aw of the Ocean Geographic Society, that retraced Sir Ernest Shackleton’s famous Endurance expedition in 1914-16 from the Antarctic Peninsula to South Georgia.

A team of 57 celebrated photographers, film makers, artists, musicians and scientists from 18 countries spent 19 days visually documenting Antarctica, capturing life above and below the ice, its flora and fauna, icebergs and glaciers in all its breathtaking splendour.

Close encounters with the region’s enchanting animals including Fur, Weddell, Leopard and Crabeater seals as well as Adelie and King penguins feature alongside magnificent images depicting the epic nature and awe inspiring beauty of the pristine Antarctic landscape.

The expedition had a major environmental mission – to demonstrate how global warming is affecting the area. Mircoscopic marine life forms such as plankton and krill, essential to the survival of the Antarctic ecosystem and important indicators of climate change, are also showcased.

Michael Aw, expedition leader said, 'The mission of the Elysium team was to encapsulate the splendour of the frozen continent - the sights and sounds of this enchanting region - through images which will serve as an important reference for monitoring climate change. This inaugural exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, showcasing the finest of the 20,000 images captured, will allow visitors to immerse themselves in this awe inspiring region.'
