Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago only 600 miles from the North Pole, is an area of amazing beauty. Snow capped mountains, magnificent fjords, and massive glaciers provide stunning scenery unlike any other part of the world--except Antarctica. Add to that frequent sightings of polar bears, reindeer, walruses, seals, puffins, and terns; as well as cliffs with thousands of auks, guillemots and kittiwakes; and you end up with an unforgettable experience. Come see photographs and hear story of a trip that Ashok Boghani made to this remote area in the Arctic. He is an award-winning photographer who has previously shared his travel experience in Ladakh with the AMC Boston Slideshow Series.
All slideshows take place at: The AMC Cabot Auditorium, 4 Joy St., Boston, MA 02108. Potluck starts at 6:30pm, slideshow at 7:15pm, doors close at 9:30pm.
