Arctic Passage

Over the course of four years, the photographer Louie Palu made more than 150,000 photos in the high Arctic. In March 2019, Palu created an installation as part of the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Texas in which some of the Arctic photographs that appear here were encased in massive blocks of ice that were then placed outdoors so that the ice would gradually melt, exposing the images.
