It feels like a scene from a movie. I'd love to know more about the exhibition in your caption and how we can find out more about it. Great work, keep it up!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

The world’s first exhibition of photographs under the ice will be opened to visitors in mid-February 2019 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 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.*Previously: Scale model of a drop of pond water showing many of your favorite pond microorganisms
The exhibition “Until The Ice Melts” is part of a large project by Viktor Lyagushkin on documenting the animals of the White Sea.
