On the trail of turquoise ice

In her series entitled Blue Ice, photographer Julieanna Kost has captured the strikingly beautiful blue and turquoise colours and gradations of the glaciers and icebergs of Antarctica. She embarked on her Antarctic expedition on a small motor boat to record the ice landscapes using digital technology.

Antarctica is the only place on earth where truly blue ice is formed: snow is compressed into the glaciers, which forces out the air bubbles while ice crystals enlarge, and as the sun rises over the horizon, the crystalline surface exhibits an astonishing turquoise colour.

Kost's website praises her art as follows:

“The combination of her passion
for photography, mastery of digital imaging techniques and her degree in psychology, makes her photographic and fine artwork familiar, yet surreal with inventive and mysterious worlds where things are not quite
as they seem.”

The photographer hopes that through her work she can get viewers to engage with the images and to allow them to escape, if only for a moment, the realty they had believed to be the true one so as to begin a journey of discovery into the mysterious world of dreams and ideas that her photos channel.
