Event | Viktor Lyagushkin: Until the Ice Melts | February 19 - April 5, 2019


February 19 - April 5, 2019


The world's first exhibition of photographs under the ice is opened to visitors beyond the Arctic Circle in the White Sea. Martians and space ships, Eywa the Wood and alien brain, aquanaut traveling across the sea on balloon - this is how photographer and Ikelite Ambassador Viktor Lyagushkin showed the underwater world of the White Sea in his photographs. A wide-angle macro shot taken with a fisheye lens is a new photographic technique invented by Viktor. The invention allowed the author to do something that no one had managed before him: to show the tiny inhabitants of the underwater Arctic in their natural environment. 

The exhibition "Until the Ice Melts" is part of a large project by Viktor Lyagushkin on documenting the animals of the White Sea.

Viktor Lyagushkin is a world-renowned photographer, winner of countless contests, Nikon Ambassador, National Geographic photographer. For almost 10 years, admirers of Viktor's talent are surprised with his projects such as the "Orda Cave. Awareness," dedicated to the longest gypsum cave in the world, located in the Urals, "Princess of Whales," where a naked woman swam under the ice with beluga whales, and others.

The world changes before our very eyes, the Arctic ice is melting, the climate is changing, species are disappearing. My goal is to show people this wonderful under the ice so that humanity understands what we will lose in the near future if we do not turn our attention to this problem. - Viktor Lyagushkin

The exhibition will last until the beginning of the ice melting.
