Melt - Portrait of an Iceberg

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Photography / Book Design / 2010

This book begins with images of massive icebergs as they enter Greenland’s Disco Bay from the Ilulissat Icefjord; it ends with the icebergs off the east coast of Newfoundland, by which time they have travelled hundreds of miles. They have been so battered and broken down that they are little more than ghosts of what they once were. Seeing them first overpowering in grandeur and then, later, about to be absorbed back into the flux from where they came, is both beautiful and humbling; a metamorphosis that endows them with a life span, each with its own personality, each with its own story.
