Antarctica challenges our human concept of scale and importance.
Huge aggregations of whales are dwarfed by the coastal mountains and glaciers that surround their feeding grounds. In turn, the food for these cetaceans, the krill, seems impossibly insufficient to feed such an explosion of life. No trees, no buildings, nothing exists to assist in reconciling the sheer size of the southern continent. At most, the penguins and seals of Antarctica display a passing disregard for human presence. Humans still hold no relevance in this great wilderness.
To be alone in Antarctica re-frames a person’s place on this planet.
