Kunstnerens egen kommentar
Trips to Emperor Penguin rookeries in Antarctica are a significant commitment of time and expense and the hope is always that the long trip home is made easier by the knowledge that there are some strong images in the can. The best images tend to have two key features that allow them to transcend the majority of others that have been taken in this vast continent. The first is that they can never be taken again - they are little vignettes of unique moments in time that have been captured accurately by the camera. This is quite a challenge as most penguin images tend to offer little by way of surprise - we all know what an Emperor Penguin or a chick looks like. But the second component can be even more elusive and that is the photograph must carry with it something that will elicit an emotional reaction in the viewer. Without emotion, a photograph of something as simple as two penguin chicks is unlikely to stand the test of time. This image from some years ago is a favourite of mine and we have printed it here for the first time in colour. The behaviour of the higher penguin chick is so empathetic that we as humans can immediately identify with the image, which is unusual given that humans and penguins live totally different lives. We have all extended the hand of friendship in our lives - some people do it every day - metaphorically and indeed literally. But here is a baby penguin - only weeks old - showing empathy to his friend and I am indeed fortunate to have caught this on camera. I am not sure at what stage children start to think of others rather than themselves, but whatever the answer, it is clear that penguins show manners and kindness far earlier in their lives than we do in ours.
