A frozen continent stretching across 13 million km2, Antarctica had until now seemed sheltered from the dangers of climate disruption. Protected by an international treaty it has been spared the effects of hunting and fishing. But signs in ice's cyclical patterns and its biodiversity have become worrying. Connected to the planet's global ecosystem via atmospheric circulation and ocean currents, this white haven is suffering the effects of human activities. To document and explain what is unfolding in Antarctica, photographer, diver, and marine biologist Laurent Ballesta and photographer of extreme environments Vincent Munier will be blending their artistic perspectives of a rapidly changing continent. Antarctica, In the Footsteps of the Emperor is an ode to the biodiversity and protection of the white continent.
