McMurdo Station is the largest station in Antarctica, a sprawling place, functional and utilitarian, a work in progress since its beginnings before the 1957-1958 IGY. And it has character. As a photographer I found myself wandering the remote corners of the station, drawn to the older structures, the building housing Cosray, the Quonset huts, and others like the BFC, FEMC shops and Paint Barn. These places have a unique McMurdo character, part of it is architectural, part is how these utilitarian building shells have been adapted into unique work and living spaces by the people who use them. I'm a reader of early Antarctic exploration narratives, and the landscapes of McMurdo come alive through the early expedition huts, and the routes traced and place named by the early explorers and scientists. Click on thumbnails to enlarge and hover over enlarged images to see captions.
