Celebrate the Explorers Club Fellow and National Geographic photographer Sebastian Copeland's new book, Antarctica: The Waking Giant, winner of the 2020 International Photographers Award for  Professional Book Photographer of the Year. With foreword by Leonardo DiCaprio. 

“Copeland is the foremost polar photojournalist of his generation.”
— Environmental Journals

 

Antarctica's ice sheet is a powerful entity, alive and dynamic. It is up to three million years old; its mass is constantly and imperceptibly moving, finally calving to the sea. Deep in the heart of the continent is a barren desert of snow, while the coast teems with life: the dominion of whales, birds, penguins, and seals, which had previously evolved outside of human contact.


Until recently, scientists thought Antarctica had remained mostly untouched by climate change. But now they have warned that the ice is indeed melting—and quickly. My research there gave me a deeper perspective of the subtle variations taking place at the hands of climate change, says Copeland. The images I bring back tell the story of a changing environment that spells the oncoming redrawing of the world's map, and all that it implicates.

“Sebastian [...] hearing from people like you inspires us as we continue working towards a brighter future.”

— President Barack Obama

"A book of haunting beauty. Sebastian Copeland's photography, combined with the insights of luminaries and environmental experts, makes a case that is both exquisite to look at and impossible to ignore."
— Arianna Huffington, Political Commentator

 For European book purchase, Antarctica: The Waking Giant is available wherever fine books are sold and online.
