Non-ticketed event

From Pole to Pole exhibition presents forty pictures conveying some of the unusual, still pure atmosphere that prevails in the explored areas during the journey on the yacht Tara. The aim of the black and white colors is to reinforce the impression of eternity of the landscapes where the mad rush of time seems to have stopped. The photographs also reflect the pristine nature of all human traces, a still life without influence. The ice plays a particularly important role which along with the fields, oceans, deserts and forests form one unity.

Vincent Hilaire, the photographer on Tara, shares his thoughts of the journey:

…amazing journey that I was able to live at both ends of our earth, in 2007 and 2011; a rare opportunity, since I could get aboard Tara, an exceptional yacht; an unique opportunity to discover the land of ice for two seasons that punctuate the life of the poles at the same time: the night north boreal and the south austral summer.
