Cold is not the average coffee table book. Dutch travel photographer ,Thijs Heslenfeld, boarded the Dutch threemast barque Europa and sailed from Argentina all the way to South Africa. His Antarctic images have been published in magazines wordwide, including National Geographic Adventure and GEO Saison.
The best photographs have been collected in an impressive photobook – together with the English logbook from captain Klaas Gaastra. Check out more images on the website of 'Cold'. And have a look at the PDF guide here: Cold - Sailing to Antarctica PDF

The book sold more than 5000 copies within a few months – making it a top five bestseller in the Dutch photobook market. The UK press has been very enthusiastic about the book lately too. A few quotes:
"Heslenfeld has succeeded where I feel others have failed. Cold isn’t a sugar-coated portrait of the continent; it looks bleak, capricious and genuinely wild."
"'Cold' is a triumph. (...) ...one of Europe‘s most accomplished travel photographers..."
"Who would have thought the cold could be so beautiful? In this stunning collection of images, Thijs Heslenfeld has created a portal to a land only intrepid souls venture to, and he's done it with creative flair and a sensitive eye."
The Sea Magazine
"Packed with striking images of everything from the boats Heslenfeld sailed in and crew who manned them to towering icebergs and breathtaking wildlife shots, this hardback is a source of delight and inspiration."
Digital Photographer Magazine
And this is what ePHOTOzine’s own editor Peter Bargh had to say about it:
"The photography is technical perfect, the images are stunning. (...) Even if you have no desire to go to the edges of the world, or normally get enthused about travel books, here's one that will probably make a difference. Highly recommended."
