Antarctica has been endlessly photographed, partly because it’s one of the last true wildernesses on earth, and also because it’s currently in a state of monumental change.

Gray Malin wanted to depict these shifts in a clever way, so in his landscape photos of the breathtaking scenery, he added details like beach balls and inner tubes to signal what could happen to the continent.

Zooming In: Life’s a Beach
in honor of the first weeks of summer, we chatted with Gray Malin, one of our favorite photographers, who captures sun-soaked beach life in Sydney. he gets many of his photos by hanging out of a helicopter—how’s that for some summer-adventure inspiration?

“I love the thrill of having the helicopter door open and feeling the wind whipping against my face, camera shaking. It’s a rush of energy when you see a moment and lean in to capture it while dangling 500 or more feet above your subject.”

“Of all the beaches I’ve shot in the world, Sydney is my favorite. Beautiful water, colorful sunbathers, white-sand beaches, crowds of swimmers, numerous surfers and a variety of beach landscapes—it’s my heaven!”

“This was a very cool moment that happened during my most recent flight over Sydney. A group of people were swimming quite far from the shore, so we began to hover while I zoomed in and studied the scene. Sure enough, there was a dolphin playing with the crowd.”

“I am a geometry whiz (though was awful at algebra) and, for me, the bird’s-eye perspective reduces everything to form, shape and repetition within the frame of my camera. Hexagonal beach umbrellas, rectangular loungers—it makes my mind race as though I am solving a geometric equation each time I compose an image.”
