Abandoned Whaling Station Antartica


Whaler’s Bay Deception Island

In addition to the beautiful landscapes and wildlife to photograph, the Antartic is also home to numerous whaling stations that have long since been abandoned to the snow and ice. These time capsules to the past are a particular passion of mine to photograph.

The buildings, structures and other artifacts date from the period of 1906-31, on the shore of Whaler’s Bay at Deception Island, are considered the most significant whaling operation remains in the Antarctic.
