60 years ago, world leaders agreed to leave Antarctica free of war, weapons and nuclear waste. They declared that the uninhabited continent with no indigenous population, twice the size of Australia and 98% ice, should not belong to any country and instead be dedicated to community science. Additional rules to prevent companies from mining minerals and drilling for oil made Antarctica the largest protected area in the world. Now climate change is eroding that success story. ⁠ But higher temperatures aren't the only threat to the pristine natural environment; in recent years, the continent has become a contested territory, concealing resources that could prove irresistible in a world with an ever-growing population.⁠ ⁠ On the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica, Antarctic Resolution offers a high-resolution image of this hyper-surveilled yet neglected continent. In contrast to the fragmented view offered by Big Data companies, the book is a holistic study of the continent’s unique geography, unparalleled scientific potential, contemporary geopolitical significance, experimental governance system, and extreme inhabitation model. A transnational network of multidisciplinary polar experts – represented in the form of authored texts, photographic essays, and data-based visual portfolios – reveals the intricate web of growing economic and strategic interests, tensions, and international rivalries, which are normally enveloped in darkness, as is the continent for six months of the year.   Buy...

In a visually stunning way, she touches on questions about our relationship with animals and meat consumption.⁠ Buy...

Composed of pictures of animals clipped from magazines and newspapers, stamps and photos from advertising pamphlets, Lous Martens’ new photobook is a symbol of family devotion before anything else. Prior to finding their way to this book, Lous first started gathering these pictures seventeen years ago, with the intention of making a small book for her newly born grandson Jaap. She didn’t finish it though for that another baby was born, and she had to start another book for the new baby. But the collection of pictures grew interestingly big, and surprisingly beautiful it had to be shared. In total there were five unfinished books laying around until they were assembled in one volume: the Animal Books for Jaap Zeno anna Julian Luca. Buy...
