Space and Tranquillity

Posted on by Nick

“I carried the memory of Antarctic alike a mantra or a prayer, an inner place of space and tranquillity when my days seemed cramped or chaotic… I think of the great silence that lies unbroken in the south. I think of the simplicity of that world of ice and light, of the beauty that I saw conjured from those two elements. I think of its limitless skies, and how they brought an awareness of the rhythms that operate on a vast, celestial scale.”

Gavin Francis, ‘Empire Antarctica’, 2013
