In 1959, Robert McCabe -- a twenty-four year old photojournalist on assignment for the New York Sunday Mirror Magazine -- embarked on a hazardous yet wondrous expedition to the South Pole, an adventure so extreme that it surpassed his sense of reality. He returned from that trip with scores of magnificent photographs that continue to dazzle: the Antarctic landscape (including many startling aerial shots), the young adventurers themselves having the time of their lives, and the wildlife, including regal but surprisingly friendly penguins. Eighty-seven of these vivid black and white photographs are in McCabe¿s latest book of photographs, DeepFreeze! A Photographer¿s Antarctic Odyssey in the Year 1959. Accompanied by a concisely powerful narrative, McCabe has created a book that takes his readers on a vivid emotional journey, one that "will be valued by all who are moved by sublime glimpses of far away places," said Caroline Alexander, author of The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic. DeepFreeze! will be be published on October 1, 2010 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Roald Amundsen becoming the first person to reach the South Pole. About the author: The National Herald called Robert McCabe's photographs "iconic." Mr. McCabe's books of photographs include Greece: Images of an Enchanted Land 1954-1965, Weekend in Havana: An American Photographer in a Forbidden City, and On the Road with a Rollei in the '50s. Mr. McCabe divides his time between New York and Athens. His next book will be a photographic journey through Central Park.
