Canadian photographer Jeff Topham has found beauty with his camera in some of the most chaotic and poverty stricken countries in the world. But it wasn't until a recent trip to Antarctica as the photographer-in-residence aboard Canadian ship Akademik Ioffe with One Ocean Expeditions where the isolation and peaceful setting gave him time to reflect on the stories he's told over the years.

A man of few words who communicates best through his pictures, Topham himself directed this short documentary that was produced for CBC Arts by Stephanie Matteis.
