History Photography

Ice Mask

October 22, 2011

The Australasian Antarctic Expedition team explored Antarctica from 1911 through 1914, studying geology, meteorology, and mapping unknown lands. Here, a photograph by Frank Hurley shows the team meteorologist C.T. Madigan with an incredibly thick ice mask after a day of weathering the elements. Here’s another more extreme example. The photo is from the National Library of Australia Commons which recently made several hundred historical images available online.

Cameron Zotter, a design student at the Maryland Institute College of Art, made this typeface by photographing uppercase letters made of ice at specific points during the process of melting. The final image of melting letterforms is really striking, would make a nice print. See also: snow typography.(via found by james)

Incredibly beautiful capture of a frozen statue. Spent twenty minutes trying to find the photographer with no luck. Anyone? (via fasels suppe)

Update: It’s by photographer Miika Järvinen, as part of this series. Unfortunately there’s not an easy way to browse it, but if you like barren icescapes, there’s some real gems. (thnx, william!)
