Ice Sculptures at Toronto’s Icefest 2019

Each February for the past 14 years, for one weekend only, Cumberland Street in Toronto’s Yorkville Neighbourhood comes alive with awe-inspiring ice sculptures attracting thousands of people who jostle, politely but firmly, to have a moment to capture a selfie with each sculpture.

It was a challenge for me to photograph these remarkable works of ephemeral translucent beauty without anyone standing in front of them, but with patience, I managed to get a few pictures.

    Beautiful, Emanuel, the human figures especially. What is an Icefest? The art of turning the unbearably cold into a heart-warming experience. That is what you conveyed with your photos.
