Award-winning landscape photographer Lynn Teo Simarski gave a wonderfully informative presentation about Antarctic photography. She described its fascinating history and provided tips for photographing desolate landscapes. She also showcased her own elemental, abstract-leaning images of Antarctic ice, rock, water, and wind shot from a cruise ship over several seasons.
Lynn Teo Simarski’s photography and writing bring the unnoticed to view in Antarctica, as well
as in other wild waterscapes and landscapes. While living aboard a boat, she wrote a column
and articles about the Chesapeake Bay for newspapers and magazines. Her award-winning
fine-art photographs of the Bay, along with her photographs made in Antarctica, Maine,
Wisconsin, and South Carolina, can be seen on her website (https://lynnteosimarski.com). Her
work has been shown in galleries and other venues, and is in private collections in Maryland,
Virginia, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Texas, and California. As a science writer,
she managed media relations for research supported by the National Science Foundation in
Antarctica and the Arctic and was a speechwriter for the Foundation’s director. She is writing a
book about the Chesapeake Bay.
