WILD EXTREMES:

SHACKLETON VISITS THE BREATHTAKING BEAUTY OF GREENLAND IN SUMMER

Rene Koster has seen the world through his camera lens. The photography from his Antarctica project won him the runner-up prize in Travel Photographer of the Year 2006.

In this trip to West Greenland, he was accompanied by Marco Barneveld, a travel writer and adventurer. Marco’s travel stories are published globally in, amongst others, National Geographic Traveller, Explore and Sidetracked. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of travel magazine wideoyster.com.

In the late Spring 2018, Rene and Marco were invited to West Greenland to shoot some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and to meet some of the world’s friendliest (and hardiest) locals.

Anticipating the extreme conditions, The Shackleton Company was pleased to equip the duo with a selection of high-performance polar gear: Endurance Parkas, Signature Sweaters, Merino layers and Lupoid down jackets which kept them warm in conditions well under minus 20. Here is the record of their trip and a selection of Rene’s comments on life as a photographer in some of the world’s most extreme environments.
