Photo by Sisse Brimberg @sissebrimberg The remains of the 1912 Norwegian whaling station at Stromness, South Georgia. Also the location for Ernest Shackleton’s rescue journey in 1916. In 1931, it was converted into a ship repair yard with a machine shop and a foundry. It remained operational until 1961 when the site was abandoned. Stromness has been subject to damage from the elements and many of its buildings have been reduced to ruins. Recent efforts have been made to restore the “Villa” and clean up debris from the rest of the site. Cotton Coulson and Sisse Brimberg are working on a long-term photographic project to document the remains of human debris left in pristine environments around the world. @sissebrimberg @natgeotravel @onassignment @natgeo @natgeocreative @expeditionworkshops @ngeexpeditions @lindbladexp
