Andrea says:

I took this image during a cold winter morning spent on the incredible surface of the frozen lake.

Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world, containing almost a quarter of the world’s fresh surface water. Moreover it is the world’s deepest lake and considered the oldest.

In this picture you see a small fish stuck in the ice that turns into a work of art, like an insect trapped in the amber. Winter temperatures in this area exceed -40°C in the coldest days of January. It’s almost surreal when you think of the dynamics that led this small animal to an almost absurd death…

About Andrea:

Italy

Internationally renowned photographer, adventurer and storyteller, Andrea Pozzi was born in 1987 in Bormio, one of Italy’s alpine jewels. He has consistently earned awards in the most important international competitions of nature photography, including the most prestigious one in the world: the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Since an early age, he has always been fascinated by distant lands, places where contact with nature is fundamental and where civilisation was unable to take root. The excitement behind a new experience, a new landscape or a new encounter is what gives him life. The growing desire for discovery, which becomes stronger with every new journey, has given birth to his own personal photographic (but not only) project, FORGOTTENLANDS.

Andrea’s camera has taken him to the wild and remote corners of the world, witnessing the huge glaciers of Alaska and Yukon, the peaks of Patagonia and Asia, the tropical paradises of Polynesia, the Andean Plateau, the desolate moorlands of Scotland, the tangled forests of New Zealand, the unbelievable japanese winter, the wild Siberian taiga and the northern lights of Lapland. He visited more than 60 countries.
Every journey in the attempt to portray the beauty and the magic around him, trying to know better himself getting in touch with the soul of adventure and exploration. 

Author of an autobiographical book (2015), entitled “30”, he is known for his great passion for adventure and an unconventional lifestyle. He is often seen as the protagonist of solitary and sometimes singular experiences in the wilderness.

Since 2005 he has also been a ski instructor, a skill that often allows him to reach unspoiled places.

Graduated in environmental architecture in 2009, his life path led him to move away from a physically static profession to apply his knowledge and aesthetic taste developed during the course of studies in photographic art: gifted with a great spirit of observation, he firmly believes that the reading of one’s photographs is closely linked to our background, to everything we have experienced during our growth.
