These photographs are from an expedition to Palmer Station in Antarctica with the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers Program. It's my second visit to Antarctica, the first was to McMurdo in 2015. The two stations couldn't be more different. McMurdo is on a different scale, more like a large university campus, housing, feeding and supporting up to 1000 scientists, researchers and support staff at a time. Palmer supports just over 40 people at the station in three larger buildings, Biolab, GWR (Garage, Warehouse and Recreation), and the Terralab, and a number of smaller buildings. Access to Palmer is from Chile by icebreaker via a four day crossing including two days in the Drake Passage. I was on station for 6 days before returning to Chile on the LMG icebreaker.
