Antarctica

In 2002, the National Science Foundation awarded Myers an Antarctic Artists and Writer’s Grant to photograph at McMurdo Station, surrounding field stations, historic huts, and the South Pole during the 2002-2003 austral summer. Her four-year traveling SITES show entitled Wondrous Cold: an Antarctic Journey opened at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC in May 2006, accompanied by a book published by Smithsonian Books.

“This photographic project, with its resulting exhibitions and book, links the past years of exploration visible in the historic huts of Scott and Shakelton with the ongoing research at McMurdo, surrounding field stations, and the South Pole, as seen in the structures that cling to the Antarctic ice and in the faces and stances of those who work there.”  -Joan Myers
