Beyond Woop Woop: John Kelly in Antarctica

By John Kelly and Gina Lee, published by What Gina did Next

Woop Woop is actually somewhere in Antarctica, and John, like many others before him, has gone beyond it. This book will show us a little of his adventures and his response to life in the great white wilderness. – Gina Lee

In 2013, John Kelly was awarded the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) Arts Fellowship. John “trained” for the experience by painting en plein air on the rugged coastline of Ireland, but the winds of the Atlantic were mild compared to the notorious Southern Ocean.

During his 3 month sojourn he produced over 50 paintings, several sketchbooks and 5 essays for The Guardian blog. This book includes all the paintings from Antarctica along with the essays and some stunning photography by experienced expeditioners Justin Chambers and Richard Youd who documented John’s experience in Antarctica.
