Mr. Freeze

THEWHITE SEAADVENTURE

The AS&B Adventurer

The Russian Arctic usually evokes

a sense of oppression. What with

the bloody Siberian gulags and

everything, people don't usually

volunteer to journey to this end of the

world. AS&B's resident Adventurer,

Dhritiman Mukherjee, however was more than

willing to venture out into this deep freeze, diving

into the hallucinatory waters of the White Sea to

bring us some of the most enthralling pictures of

its otherworldly landscape. This herculean task saw

him come face to face with some of the strangest

creatures on the planet, an experience that more

than ever affirms the risk that these species face

from climate change and how imperative it is to

protect them.
