The artist Stefan Hunstein journeyed to the Arctic in 2012 and returned with magical photographs of untouched landscapes. In their majesty and beauty, their immensity and their palpable, deadly cold, the photographs echo the visions of ice in painting and literature, especially during the Romantic era. Stefan Hunstein: In the Ice offers a selection of more than fifty of these breathtaking photographs for the first time.

In these photographs, Hunstein, famous for his critical examination of contemporary history through the artistic processing of pre-existing pictures, is behind the camera himself, and his unusual work feels almost unreal in its outlines, shadows, and reflections. Luminous and haunting, the photographs were printed on glass using a special technique, and the reproductions gathered here capture the intersection of the fragile and the monstrous, the beauty of nature and the dangers it hides.
