Under the ice

The story behind this print, in the words of photographer Franco Banfi: "Approximately 90% of the ice mass of an iceberg is hidden below the surface, and I wanted to show these Arctic giants from a new perspective. Underwater, their structures are completely different and their shapes and textures are constantly changing. You quickly notice that every iceberg is alive; they creak, move, and breathe. When you’re down there listening to the crackling from this frozen fortress, you feel very small."

This image, taken in  Greenland, placed third in the Ocean Adventure Photographer of the Year category at OPY2023.
