'A Portrait of Ice'

Caleb Cain Marcus’s second monograph, A Portrait of Ice, is a series of color photographs depicting the glaciers of Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, New Zealand and Alaska.

While on a trip to Patagonia Caleb Cain Marcus began to think about the role of a horizon. “As the boat that crossed Lake Argentino swayed back and forth, I thought about the oppression created by the lack of a horizon in an urban environment and what would happen if there was no visible horizon in the open space. What would happen if it vanished?” To create a successful photograph he believes, “The preconceived line between the artist’s vision and what the subject resonates blurs until the influence from artist and subject can no longer be distinguished.”
