Photology – Talks and discussion about photography
The Pig, 37 White Rock, Hastings TN34 1JL
£5 on the door for the speaker
Martin will be speaking about his experiences as an expedition photographer to both Antarctica and the Arctic Ocean, and what makes them different, in the way each region affects the psychology of the polar traveller and the photographs that come from those experiences.
Martin Hartley has spent the last twenty years documenting the Arctic Ocean, his favourite place and possibly the most hostile and difficult place on earth to practice photography. Martin has covered over 2000 miles skiing on separate expeditions, living for 400 days on the skin of the Arctic Ocean including a 99 day crossing of The Arctic Ocean from Russia to Canada across the top of the planet. On his next expedition Martin will be working with the European Space Agency and the US National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration to locate and document the last of the oldest remaining sea ice in the Arctic Ocean before it is lost to global warming.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, 2021: “If you haven’t got Martin Hartley as your Polar Photographer, then you haven’t got the best one there is!”
