If Eskimos have 49 words for snow, does it mean that many types of snow exist in the world? And how about ice? Icelandic photographer Örvar Atli Þorgeirsson is no stranger to ice, and from the shots of aging ice (‘It starts as a snow fall a few centuries ago high in the mountains above… At last it ends up at the end of the glacier, maybe as a small iceberg before finally turning into water again’) in Skaftafell to red hot ice (‘ice bergs stranded on the black lava sand beach’) in the Jökulsárlón glacier lake he’s captured, there really is a lot of ice.
