Landscapes at the World’s Ends

Landscapes at the World’s Ends is a non-verbal, visual journey to the polar regions of our planet portrayed through a triptych montage of photography and video. Landscapes at the World’s Ends is a multi-dimensional canvas of imagery recorded above the Arctic Circle and below the Antarctic Convergence.

Filmed during several artist residencies onboard three expedition vessels, New Zealand nature photographer and award-winning filmmaker Richard Sidey documents light and time in an effort to share his experiences and the beauty that exists over the frozen seas. Set to an ambient score by Norwegian Arctic-based musician, Boreal Taiga, this experimental documentary transports you to the remote islands of South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula, Greenland and Svalbard.

  1. Antarctica gave me chills at how desolate it is with very little wildlife and absolutely no human inhabitants…not a good place for a vacation! The Arctic on the other end, seems much more alive and is inhabited with many animals as well as the Eskimo who are an incredibly resilliant and resourseful race of people. All in all it was a very touristy type of video with the cameraman having some very powerful lenses so that he or she didn`t have to leave the boat. It`s a few nice pictures but I think it`s a somewhat limited representation of our polar regions. The musical soundtrack was nice but a narative of what we were seeing would`ve been nice too.Ì have often wondered, which is colder…the North Pole or the South Pole on an average yearly tempreature basis…we people in North America think of the South as being warmer, knowing that the Northern Lights are spectacular but they give off absolutely no heat!…Still…this video leaves me cold…as cold as a caribou or an arctic fox or a ptarmigan which you can`t see from the boat.
