ANTARCTICA 2012-2013

Between 2012 and 2013, I had the opportunity to visit the Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station (EACF), in the South Shetland Islands, and record the routine and work of the members of the Brazilian Antarctic Program, including the crews of the 1st Transport Group of the Brazilian Air Force, which performs ten flights a year to Antarctica, and the polar ship Almirante Maximiliano, which provides support to the Brazilian base. On February 28, 2012, the EACF suffered a fire that affected 70% of its facilities and killed two of its members. Among the photographs are images of the rescue operation of the bodies. The material was provided for use by the Brazilian Navy and published in specialized publications.
