Mercators Projection, Antarctica 2007
Uummannaq, Greenland, 2009
Vancouver Photographer David Burdeny has me completely captivated. The geometry of his iceberg shots makes such order out of such unpredictable objects; I especially love the four squares that the first image above makes on in the frame. The cold photos are full of implied danger despite their overt tranquility; chunks of ice will be still for a years and then, in one thunderous crack, drop into the ocean, sending up massive sprays of the sea. I love how David somehow managed to capture that possibility in the still shots (more after the jump).
His city photos (after the icebergs) are geometric, too. He plays with horizon so well, and with the point at which objects meet the sky.
