There are only a few landscapes in the world to show the untamed nature but surely the artica is one of them.
The rare motive is impressive but also this global treasure is in danger.
Copeland’s aim is to create a homage to the nature’s masterpiece and at the same time to create awareness towards the threatening development.
Copeland himself has interesets which are different: he is an award-winning photographer, a journalist, an author, a polar researcher and passionate lover of the environment.
He honors this lonely place on our planet and wants to remind of ist untamed nature and authentic beauty – the dangerous situation should be an alarm call to the countries located on southern latitude.
This book shows his passion for this theme in a way no other photographer could have done it.
The first impression oft he pictures might be poetic but the message is pragmatic; he wants the society to open their eyes and provide sustainablity for the nature.
