Frozen Winters

24 Jan

Toronto is currently going through a deep freeze this week with temperatures outside feeling like -30 degrees Celsius. I felt this installation by Chris Lawson really captures just how frigid and unforgiving winter can be.

deep north6Deep North depicts an abandoned house where the inhabitants left so suddenly they left all their personal effects untouched. A table is set, a book is left open and dishes wait to be put away. Left to the elements and plummeting centigrade, a thick sheet of ice covers the interior of the house and leaves a life suspended in time. The photos depict an absolute quiet, freezing temperatures and an eerie stupor in each room. Just thinking about how the installation was created makes me shiver. If you haven’t had a frosty winter yet, Deep North will surely send you some icy chills! Stay warm my friends!
