The work of Melbourne-based photographer Brooke Holm, the series of photographs is so skilfully rendered that it almost sends a shiver down your spine. Captured during Holm's recent adventure to the Arctic Circle, they bring to light the fragility, beauty and isolation of this largely untraversed part of the world and, Holme hopes, will reveal the need to preserve the Arctic's incredible landscapes from the potentially devastating impact of climate change.

Sheer beauty: the breathtaking Arctic photography exhibition opening this week

Holm is a seriously skilled fine art photographer whose landscapes, still life and architecture shots are sought after around the country - so don't expect this series to last long after opening night. Known for her expert capturing of mood and light, her works are as distinctive as they are timeless.
