Summer in South Georgia
Writer and photographer Jamie Grant travelled to the Falkland Islands and across the Southern Ocean to take up the post of Artist in Resident on South Georgia for the South Georgia Heritage Trust (SGHT) between November 2015 and January 2016. He lived in the abandoned whaling station of Grytviken with SGHT museum staff, close to the British Antarctic Survey Base at King Edward Point. Joining field biologists on multi-day expeditions on remote penisulas, he was able to visit areas that most visitors can’t reach.
His account of an Austral summer on this sub-Antarctic isle is published by Watermill Books. Mixing images with travel writing, ‘Summer in South Georgia’ is a unique tale of wildlife, conservation and true wilderness at the ends of world.
“When my daughter excitedly announced that her dream had come true and she was off to South Georgia with BAS I asked her to see if their library had any books-with-pictures so I could have a glimpse at where she is headed. She brought back your 'Summer In South Georgia'. I have so enjoyed it. Both the evocative mages and your very poetic and accessible writing. It was literally' wonderful.' I can share her euphoric sense of anticipation even more now. Thank You!”
