In 2011 Peter McMahon and Paul Mallam travelled to the Antarctic Peninsular.  These photographs document that journey, from the desolate and brooding Antarctic Mountain Range to the strange reassuring world of the Vernadsky Research Station, home to an outpost of Ukrainian scientists.  The exhibition conveys the raw and alien sense of the Antarctic, which remains the most challenging place on earth for human beings, on the 100th anniversary of Amundsen’s successful expedition to the South Pole.  Most of all, the photographs show the contradiction of Antarctica, which is so vast and forbidding, yet is falling victim to global warming.

Artists talk on 26 May.
