Photographer Shaun O’Boyle has traveled to both polar regions to capture the stark beauty of remote and beautiful Arctic and Antarctic landscapes. With a background in architecture and engineering, his images often focus on the built environment, where Western exploration and industrial activities intersect and engage with the unique landscapes of polar lands. From sophisticated telescopes imaging the cosmic microwave background at South Pole Station to the long-abandoned remains of exploration and mining camps, O’Boyle’s photographs explore the complex interplay of human endeavor, environmental extremes, and the passage of time.
