Join us at the Aspetuck Brew Lab for “Some Like It Frozen,” a photographic odyssey about Antarctica.
Don Hyman, a retired corporate communications consultant and former Associated Press reporter/photographer, fulfilled a boyhood dream when he joined an expedition to Antarctica. Traveling with a mixed group of scientists and adventurers from around the world, he explored Antarctica’s Palmer Peninsula, a mountainous, ice-covered, finger of land on Earth’s immense seventh continent.
“I saw grandeur, vastness, beauty, loneliness and unforgettable malevolence as well,” said Hyman.
From the moment of departure by ship from the bottom of Argentina, Tierra del Fuego, his cameras captured abundant wildlife, the fantastic ice sculpture of massive icebergs and ancient glaciers creeping and melting into the sea. He also recorded remnants of man’s struggle over the last 100+ years to live in this challenging environment, a continent without a country.
Hyman has traveled extensively on all seven continents and the seas that surround them. He has lived in Fairfield since 1979 and is the immediate past president of Aspetuck Land Trust.
