Sans NomPhotography // Wednesday, 06 Aug 2014
Since 2003, photographer Jean de Pomereu has been traveling to Antartica for various personal photographic endeavors. In “Sans Nom”, Pomereu captures the unnamed icebergs of Antartica. In these images, he uses the icebergs’ subtlety against the similar palette of the sky to emphasize their fragility and enormity within their landscape. “For me, Antarctica is an object of continued visual and intellectual fascination : A wilderness that, however much it is scrutinized and deconstructed, remains unmoved in its glacial quietude, its penetrating silence, and its ability to draw us, one degree at a time, toward the essential,” explains Pomereu.
