Photographer Captures The Contradictions Of Otherworldly Antarctica

"When WAMU photographer Tyrone Turner got the opportunity to travel to Antarctica, he thought he would be fascinated with the continent's wildlife."

"But instead, it was the ice — in its myriad shapes and textures, "bathed in polar light that morphed from powerfully sharp and blue, to gentle and pink" — that Turner says mesmerized him."

"'Antarctica just seemed to me absolutely 'the other world,'" Turner says. 'There is no other landscape like it.'"

"Turner's trip to Antarctica last November began in the Falkland Islands, where he boarded the National Geographic Explorer for a three-week journey."
