What's On

Out Of Sight / Out Of Mind
Out Of Sight / Out Of Mind Image
Out of Sight/Out of Mind is a portrait exhibition project in aid of the 2041 Foundation.

The Polar Regions are, for most of us, 'Out of Sight and Out of Mind'; they are beyond our reach, and thus, our only contact with them is through polar explorers, educators and scientists - the 'public face' of these regions.

The Out of Sight/Out of Mind project aims to raise awareness of the problems faced by the Polar Regions and amplify the work being done to research these fragile environments and lessen the impact of climate change.

By depicting a range of representatives of these regions with their eyes closed, I hope to create a thought-provoking and affecting exhibition that will capture the attention of viewers, asking them to dig a little deeper and find out more about the work being done in these mysterious and magical regions of our planet.

Portrait subjects include:

Robert Swan OBE - Polar explorer and founder of the 2041 Foundation.

Captain Louis Rudd MBE - Record-breaking polar adventurer and expedition leader.

Preet Chandi MBE - The first woman of colour to ski solo and unsupported to the South Pole.

Felicity Aston MBE - Polar explorer, author and former climate scientist.

Dr Heidi Sevestre - glaciologist, fellow international of The Explorers Club, working at the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme.

Mark Wood - Polar explorer, chairman of the Great Britain and Ireland Chapter of The Explorers Club.

Craig Mathieson - RSGS Explorer in Residence, founder of the Polar Academy.
