Mars North Pole Solo

Rosie Stancer earned her much deserved place in the record books by being the first woman to trek solo the furthest North, covering a distance of 326 miles in 84 days on the Arctic Ocean sea ice.   Deteriorating sea ice conditions forced her to abandon her trek North just 89 miles short of the North Geographic Pole, as she was unwilling to compromise the safety of the pilots if she were to continue to the Pole.

Martin photographed her training in Essex, testing her equipment in Resolute Bay, Nunavut and preparing to depart.  He was also invited to photograph her at the post-expedition reception in London, attended by HRH The Queen
