“Crossing the Antarctic Convergence: the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica”
With Dave Hartley and Jeanine Lovett
Thursday, June 16—7 p.m.
First Unitarian Universalist Church, 1187 Franklin at Geary in San Francisco
The Antarctic Convergence is a region where the cold waters from the Southern Ocean meet the warmer sub-Antarctic seas. This area is a nature lover’s paradise with vast numbers of birds and seals that are unafraid of human visitors. Dave Hartley and Jeanine Lovett’s presentation is based on several trips to the Falklands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Through photographs, they will show life among the albatross colonies (Black-browed and Wandering), the huge King Penguin colonies on South Georgia, and the Adelie, Gentoo, and Chinstrap Penguin colonies on the Antarctic Peninsula. Their images also include the stunning icebergs located close to the South Orkney Islands.
Dave was born and educated in England, then moved to New Zealand, and has lived in the Bay Area since 1997. A passionate photographer, he has visited all seven continents, including three trips to Antarctica. Jeanine was born and raised in San Diego, studied art and design in San Francisco, and works as a freelance graphic designer and photographer. Dave and Jeanine were married in Antarctica and live in Santa Cruz. Both love being out in nature and traveling.
