Publisher's presentation:

"In 2001, through a grant from the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, Gerry Johansson traveled to the inaccessible and distinct landscape of Antarctica on a research trip for two months.

With him on the journey he had a large-format camera and his fearless curiosity. The series of photos eventuate in an unusual reality relevant perspective, and capture the astonishing non-distance relationship between physicality and nature. The series was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in 2003 in Stockholm, Sweden."

A beautiful formal research on shapes and contrasts, and also an ode to the mineral beauties of this untouched and intact nature and its landscapes.

Designed & Edited by Tony Cederteg, with a text in English & Swedish by Thorbjörn Andersson.
