Ice Rider (2005)

Matthieu Paley

Limited edition of 30
Archival pigment print

A bird’s eye view of Lake Baikal, the world’s largest fresh water lake. During winter the ice is up to 1.5 metres thick, allowing trucks and animals to cross safely. The white lines are cracks in the ice and as temperatures change these emit loud shuddering noises, reinforcing the eerie atmosphere.
