As Cold As Ice: Suffering & Beauty in Frozen Europe

Arno Balzarini/Keystone/Associated Press

In Seattle, we’re enjoying some pretty balmy weather (for February). But I’m headed to Europe this week and I’m well aware that hundreds of thousands of people are suffering through a bone-chilling freeze–with temperatures dropping waaaay below normal. Amid mountains of snow and icicles as long as my arm, people are panicking and trying to help each other.

And some people are photographing.

I’ve shot in temps so cold that my film (yes film!) snapped and cracked when my camera would attempt to wind it… Seems like Eastern Europe is in that sort of mode right now. Times of great suffering and pain are also often times when some of the most touching, haunting, and remarkable art is made. Click thru this handful of frozen images via Ukraine, Serbia, Bulgaria and beyond by clicking thru the gallery tabs above. Just scratched the surface grabbing these off news services, etc. But if anyone has/knows other deep freeze images – particularly arty ones- please share a link below. Love to see them.

Very god site you have here but I was curious if you knew off any message boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d enjoy to take part in neighborhood where I could get replies utilizing knowledgeable individuals who reveal a similar curiosity. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. Thank you a good deal!

I loved the outstanding posting.

Wij zijn 3 jaar klant geweest bij Juresta Nederland bv.
Wij hebben veel klachten over Juresta, ze werpen veel hindernissen op als ze moeten incasseren. Juresta kwam meestal bij ons zeuren dat het een niet haalbare incasso was en dat wij Juresta moesten betalen. Als we dan toch wilden doorzetten lieten ze de incasso zaak versloffen. Een ander probleem was dat Juresta wil dat voordat ze
iets aan hun klant uitkeren dat die klant allemaal fax formulieren verstuurt.
En ze lieten het ons niet weten als er geld op de rekening bij Juresta binnenkwam.
Wij adviseren iedereen een ander incassobureau te zoeken,
wij zijn nu bij een ander bureau zeer tevreden.

Thanks so much for providing individuals with remarkably nice opportunity to read from this blog. It’s usually very terrific and also jam-packed with a lot of fun for me and my office colleagues to search your blog at minimum three times weekly to find out the new things you have. And definitely, I’m so always happy with all the magnificent tips you give. Selected 3 tips in this post are easily the most suitable we have ever had.

I would like to express some appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a challenge. As a result of seeking out by means of the internet and finding techniques that were not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was over. Being alive without the approaches towards the difficulties you’ve sorted out through this posting is a serious case, as well as the kind that would have badly damaged my career if I had not encountered your website. Your know-how and kindness in taking care of lots of issues was excellent. I’m not certain what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I’m able to at this time appear ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so considerably for this skilled and effective help. I will not hesitate to endorse your web sites to any individual who ought to get care on this issue.

Thanks for your tips. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that banks plus financial institutions have in mind the spending behavior of consumers as well as understand that plenty of people max out their credit cards around the holiday seasons. They correctly take advantage of this specific fact and begin flooding ones inbox plus snail-mail box along with hundreds of no-interest APR credit cards offers right after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that in case you are like 98% in the American general public, you’ll hop at the possiblity to consolidate card debt and switch balances towards 0 interest rate credit cards.

We’ve certainly had a cold spell and you captured it really well. I’m pleased to say it is back to sensible levels now which makes photography a lot more comfortable, if a little less interesting :)

But, there is a beauty in everything…

one interesting idea was born from this excessive snow, and it was turned into art: snow sculptures:

It’ s pretty cold in Hamburg/Germany too.

There the people can walk on the “Außenalster”.

Its 21 degrees most days here in Gran Canaria, the only place in Europe with sunshine and warmth. Glad I jumped ship and moved here 3 months ago when my spidey senses said GO!! I wouldnt want to be in a country that freezes over should there be a global economic meltdown :/
Frozen Margarita anyone?

Ian says:

It certainly is a little chilly in Europe. I’m just back in Paris after spending a little time in the French Alps. Started a new photo project whilst I was down there. Trying to get as far away from my usual client work as possible so am shooting film. No ‘film snappage’ as yet though so perhaps it’s not THAT cold :-)

A few pics from the first couple of rolls here – http://www.ianholmes.net/journal/2012/2/2/chasing-winter-film-images.html

Heading down to the Chamonix area in a week or so. Will be there for the majority of winter so hope to have a nice little series by the end of it.

In Geneva, some more ice on auto, ship, … About 30 ship flow in water due to too much ice on them. But the lake is not yet frozen !

James says:

Is this a joke? -11, -20 is considered bone chilling cold? this is the first year I can remember where the average temperature wasn’t under -40 celcius in January, and we’ve never closed our schools or businesses once in 50 years. Put on your jackets, mitts, hats, scarfs, and boots, and go outside..if you’re smart then you’ll be fine.

Michelle, just went to your blog. I think you should post the images of “Yolka” :) Those are the awesome!

Chris Wray says:

Only -9 here in Cambridge UK, today and the landscapes were just stunning first thing. Love those Russian frozen sea pics. Now that really is cold !!

Raman Singh says:

Derek says:

He Chase!

Drop me a line if you pass thru Amsterdam on your way back. Would love to meet and hang with you!
Great shot btw!
Grtz!

Michelle says:

It has been from -13c to -30c for the past two weeks now in Ukraine! Here is a link to a photo took of the ice on the inside of my flat’s window. http://Www.semkee.blogspot.com/2012/01/-19c-and-getting-lower.html. I am reluctant to take my camera outside as I don’t want to damage it!

Jacinda Davis says:

That’s a beautiful collection of images. We have -25F wind chills here in Minnesota this morning, but frustratingly enough there isn’t any snow or ice. Brown grass and sunshine doesn’t have the same visual impact.

Wayne says:

It’s cold here in Prague, but that’s not stopping me from going out. It’s the perfect time to capture scenes that are rarely seen during the rest of the year.

Anonymous says:

Post something, wish I could be home… Here in Scotland its all right..

Vaclav says:

Thanks Vaclav

Yeah, we’re freezing here.
Ukraine had over 135 freeze to death in the past 2 weeks.
I wanna go out & shoot, but I don’t wanna ruin my camera. Freaking -15F…

Chase says:

I’ve shot in weather so cold that film cracked and shattered. Seems like this season is approaching that style of photography all over eastern europe.
