Join Boomer Jerritt for Photographic Adventures in Antarctica! beginning 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15 at the Courtenay and District Museum.
Jerritt recently spent a month in and around the Antarctic Peninsula and the Falkland Islands as the Photographer in Residence aboard the expedition cruise ship the Sergey Vavilov. At this lecture and photo presentation he’ll be sharing experiences of his time down south…way down south.
Along with the incredible landscape and wildlife images Jerritt captured, his talk will also touch on the historical role that photography played in those first expeditions to Antarctica during the golden age of exploration.
Jerritt is a lifestyle and recreation photographer and his editorial imagery can be seen in various tourism initiatives throughout B.C. He has three photography books under his belt and currently contributes to some of North America’s top stock agencies and magazines.
