A blow-up globe of the earth emerges from a darkened background focusing on the Antarctic continent with the air valve positioned on the Southern Pole. This is one of Noble's iconic Antarctic works and is used as the frontispiece for the recent 'Contemporary New Zealand Photographers' publication. A major theme in Noble's recent body of Antarctic work is examining how Antarctica is represented and defined beyond the continent itself.
