In November 2015 Sean Garwood was chosen by the Antarctica New Zealand and Antarctic Heritage Trust to travel to Antarctica to sketch and photograph the historic huts of Robert Falcon Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton. On his return Sean worked full time on a collection of highly detailed oil paintings.
His focus is predominantly on the inside of the huts which contain a treasure trove of personal items belonging to these famous polar explorers.
Subsequently, NZ Post issues a suite of stamps featuring these paintings under the title of “Historic Huts of the Ross Dependency”. Find out more
