SOLITAIRE: Faces of Antarctica
- Presents stunning portraits of ephemeral giants
- Truly beautiful and amazing photographs from Antarctica
Two things resonate in Tom Nagy’s photographic portraits of icebergs and Antarctic landscapes: the untameable, irrepressible energies of nature and the fragility of its jagged shapes, which are minimalistic and narrative, static and mobile, majestic and delicate all at the same time. Nagy’s photographs enable us to experience this ephemeral nature becoming a picture and thus prevent them from vanishing for good. In his portraits of icebergs, they become ephemeral sculptures, which drift in the solitary silence of the Antarctic waters like artworks, to then ultimately dissolve completely. From the perspective of the photographer, the Antarctic landscape encourages us to contemplate the cycle of life and to sense our own impermanence.
