Castles of Ice: splendid sculpture and photography series by Frankie Carino

“Castles of Ice” is a magnificent and eye-catchy sculpture and photography series by Frankie Carino, an Arizona-born photographer and sculptor based in Los Angeles. In this series, he captures beautiful pictures of carved and naturally shaped ice sculptures, exploring the relationship between humans and geology.

I loved this idea of making massive ice sculptures just to melt away and rebuild the following year. (…) A collection of wonderful people work hard behind a hotel to create this uniquely human landscape. The construction requires a huge amount of water and human power, arguably an irresponsible amount, seeing the entire thing is gone by April. But the result is a beautiful display of humans’ deep fascination with minerals.
