HP and Wim van Passel tell the story of our last unspoiled wilderness


After 35 years as a commercial photographer, Wim van Passel decided to change the course of his life, and use his skills as a photographer to make a difference in the world. With a large-format camera, he headed north to document the unspoiled beauty of Antarctica. Working in partnership with the World Wide Fund, his images have been used for various campaigns to promote conservation efforts and to protect the natural wonders of Antarctica and other areas of the world.

Van Passel donates all his images to this cause, depending on help from company sponsorships. HP is proud to be a sponsor of this amazing artist and his quest to conserve this beautiful, natural masterpiece. Van Passel prints on HP Premium Instant-dry Gloss Photo Paper, which dries instantly, produces exceptional image quality on long-lasting prints that meet environmental objectives with an FSC®-certification. “I would recommend this photo paper to anyone,” says van Passel, “After all these years of photography, and 125 exhibitions later, there has never been a question or complaint about the quality of the print.”
