1987, Paradise Bay, Antarctica
Plate 67, 27x18
Man does not always react calmly and objectively to the long, long, dark silent nights of winter in Antarctica. The man that lived in this beautiful bright red cabin seems to have intentionally burned it down one winter. The one in the photo is the rebuild, not the original. Two other houses were burned but not rebuilt. Of them only the stone foundation remains. The long nights are arduous. One cannot move forward and cannot move backwards. You are just stuck with the darkness and its questions and most of all yourself.
