Rene Koster’s work concentrates mostly on travel photography and portraits for magazines and advertising agencies around the globe. Work from his Antarctica project was awarded by The Travel Photographer of The Year.
When asked ‘Why did you want to explore Antarctica?’ Rene answered to Conde Nast Traveller Spain; ‘I have always had a keen interest in history; the stories of the great expeditions to Antarctica that took place early twentieth century, to discover this continent, still unknown back then.
During my time at the Art Academy I was already fascinated by the work of Frank Hurley (1885 – 1962); he took the legendary photos of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton’s ship the Endurance, trapped in Antarctic pack ice. Finally the ship was crushed by the ice and sank’.
When Rene was invited by the shipping company to join the crew of The Bark Europa, a tall ship that was built in 1911, on a journey to Antarctica, it was a dream becoming reality.
‘Over the last year I have traveled to Greenland, the Lofoten and even twice to Iceland. And each time weather conditions were bad. In Iceland our car was blow of the road during a snow storm and we had it towed out of a ditch. Judging from the great number of stranded cars we saw alongside the road, people in Iceland are accustomed to it. But then again, the worse the weather conditions, the better the photos. We are always looking forward to the next journey’.
