Still Life

Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton

The Trust has enjoyed considerable success with Still Life: Inside the Antarctic Huts of Scott and Shackleton, the book by photographer Jane Ussher and the Trust’s Executive Director. The Trust has also turned that partnership into an arresting exhibition of the same name.

STILL LIFE, the exhibition, is a visual and sensory experience that takes the viewer inside the historic huts of heroic polar explorers Captain Robert Falcon Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton.

STILL LIFE was the centrepiece of the Christchurch City Council’s inaugural Antarctic festival, NZ IceFest, a biennial celebration of New Zealand’s connection with Antarctica, held in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2012.

The exhibition was made possible with support from The Canterbury Community Trust and The Lion Foundation.
