Ira Meyer will present a slide show of the icy world - a photographer's dream world that he has visited 30 times - which he claims is like traveling to another planet, and will include pictures of penguins, seals, whales and other creatures that make Antarctica their home.

Ira Meyer's photographs have been collected worldwide and have been published on the cover of the Turkish version of National Geographic's Climate Change special edition, in National Geographic's Atlas of Natural America, on the cover of Yosemite National Park's calendar, as the Nature Conservancy's holiday card, CD and video art, in the Los Angeles Times, on several book covers and a variety of magazines including outdoor photographer, ESCAPE, Outdoor and Nature Photography, EARTH, Digital Photographer, ArtLife and Petersen's PHOTOgraphic.

In 2008, Ira's image of a dripping arch in a Greenland iceberg received the runner-up award in the One Earth category of the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. His work is also part of the permanent collection of the City of Beverly Hills as well as Oxnard, California's Carnegie Art Museum.

Ira's Work will be on display at the OC McNish Gallery from March 22 - April 17, 2017.
The Opening reception is also on March 22nd from 4 - 6pm.
