Object Detail

Anne Noble is one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed photographers. Living in Wellington and Professor of Fine Arts, Director of Research at Massey University, she was awarded the Order of Merit for services to photography in 2003.

These photographs are from the series of work created as a result Noble’s visit to Antarctica as an Antarctic Arts Fellow in 2002.“Going to Antarctica I wanted to provide two bodies of work, and consider two ways of looking at the landscape. The first was a study of light on the Antarctic landscape – white on white. The second was to consider the landscape formed by the activities and culture of science.” By capturing a landscape that for so many exists only in the imagination, as well as simulated experiences of the southern continent, these images explore ideas about the way photographic images mediate our experiences of the real.
