Daredevil Photographer Matej Kriz Captures The Frozen Beauty Of Iceland’s Ice Caves

These frozen caves seem almost otherworldly as they daylight illuminates them. Matej Kriz’s shots reveal the beauty of the brilliant caves, but he’s also very aware of how deadly they can be. The photographer captured the amazing shots in the Vatnajokull National Park on the Breidamerkurjokull glacier tongue.

Matej said: “One of the ice caves has been well known for few years already, but new ones appeared on east side of the glacier tongue this year. I live in the area for almost one year and exploring is part of my job – since I am working in the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, we were able to spot them from the boats in the end of the summer. Since my job involves cooperating with local companies, I have good relationships with them, and they told me about caves hidden from tourists, chichis the crystal blue one. It is always dangerous in these areas, to some of them you can get on the boat and then climb on the glacier, or with a super jeep or on your own, but anything can happen at any time of course. There are active volcanoes under the glacier, and earthquakes can break the entrance to the cave … or you can encounter an Icelandic troll!

The caves change every second thanks to the light, but it is just appearance during the days. The biggest problem is the warm weather or rain because ice caves are created by streams of water – it is basically a glacier’s waste pipe. Iceland is magical country and the ice caves are a fantasy world all by themselves. You can admire the whole thing or focus on details hidden in the ice and find much more”.

Bizarre Photos Of Rarely Seen Places And Structures Captured With A Drone Offering A New Perspective Of Our Beautiful Planet

These images are enough to make viewers do a double-take. Although they look like vibrant works of abstract art, they are actually drone photographs taken by brothers J.P. and Mike Andrews, from near Wolverhampton, England.

The pair started the series in December 2016 and have visited eight countries in total, choosing both manmade and natural formations as their subject matter. Their abstract series includes aerials of marshlands, glaciers, a blood-red river, sand spits in the ocean, salt lakes, mines no longer in use, reefs, sea defenses, the inside of an abandoned cooling tower and an abandoned international airport terminal.

Portrait Series Of Immigrants Restages And Signifies The Importance Of African Settlers In Europe Throughout History And Present Day

According to the photographer Dagmar van Weeghel: “The series was inspired by the experiences of my Zimbabwean husband who moved to Europe nine years ago. As well as a visit to Andalusia- Southern Spain with it’s Moorish history.

The portraits show dignity, strength and beauty with the aim to remind viewers of the important contributions which Africans have made in European history. The work references the art of the Orientalist movement, and is inspired by the watercolor paintings of Josep Tapiro Baro in Tangier, Marocco. For centuries the West has often gazed at Africa looked through a lens which distorts the reality of the continent’s people and it’s history.

With the current surge of immigrants in the West, these preconceived notions and stereotyping often remain and are fueled by a lack of knowledge, understanding and the fear of the unknown, the fear of the other. An important part of European History which was influenced and build by Africans has been tampered with, erased or forgotten by the west in the past centuries. By offering another perspective I hope to inspire people to learn more about our shared history , and ultimately I hope to change the way people see the world and each other. All the portrayed are wearing antique oriental pieces mixed with contemporary cloths which I’ve ‘sculptured’. The portrayed are shaped in a pyramid as well, referring to Ancient Egypt. Ongoing series, its who I meet.”

“Perfection” describes these amazing photo works of a young Ukrainian artist Chervona Vorona. She is a very talented photographer who really knows how to turn all your dreams into reality. Her fairy tale retouch is magnificent and flawless. It’s impossible not to fall in love with her pictures. Enchanting, inspiring and imaginative!

“Fairy tales, this is the most important thing, my main inspiration, therefore, my images are of different ages, but they are all united by magic or a hint of it. Maybe it’s because of the books read in childhood. Although I now read mostly fairy tales! Imagination is very important in my work! But of no less importance are things like observation and resourcefulness,” she told Paradox Ethereal Magazine.
