The Big Freeze Frame
Jason Edwards: "I found the task of capturing the immense scale of Antarctica impossible I was going to fail no matter what I did. It’s like a virus that you don’t know you have until the symptoms appear, you suddenly find yourself infected and for the most part beaten. Where I began the shoot emotionally was far from where I finished the sheer scale of Antarctica’s untamed wilderness was beyond my wildest dreams. Photographically even the widest shot is basically a macro representation of the scene. I was happy to be consumed by something so immense, awe inspiring, powerful and timeless; it’s fine to be insignificant."
