Italian photographer Enzo Barracco is famous for his fashion photography, but after reading a book about British explorer Ernest Shackleton he was inspired to head a place where apparel is chosen for its warmth instead of its style - Antarctica.
About the project:
He hopes the images will inspire people to consider their actions, see the true primordial beauty of the region and consider what they can do to protect nature.
Commenting ahead of the event, Enzo said: “The aim of the project, reflected through my images, is to increase the urgent need for people to understand and decode the complex message of this ancestral territory, where the violence of the oceans driven by strong winds seems to foster the last secrets of the universe.
“It is an opportunity for deep reflection on our daily consumption, as all human activities can affect and infect a unique and far away ecosystem, as wild as that of ‘finis terrae’ Antarctica, a charismatic and mysterious place of real beauty.
