For the first time, photographers Vincent Munier and Laurent Ballesta have travelled together to discover the natural treasures of Adélie Land, in Antarctica.
Vincent Munier explored the ice field and the bird colonies, while Laurent Ballesta dove under the ice; one observed the emperor penguins and snow petrels in the open air, while the other dove with the Weddell seals and photographed the astonishing and unknown biodiversity of the Antarctic depths…
Both have brought unique pictures from this exceptional trip, where the whiteness of the ice contrasts with the submarine blue.
« Adélie, Land & Sea » is the result of artistic and technique challenges, as well as a very fine object: it gathers two volumes (one white, one blue) in a beautiful slipcase.
Text in French only (very short - two poems by director Luc Jacquet)
All the photographs were taken in 2015 during the mission "Antarctica!", leaded by Luc Jacquet and Wild-Touch.
