Gary Jensen captures a frozen Chicago building with exceptional flair

While you traipse through the UK’s snowy landscape today wrapped up in your thickest socks and fleece-lined coats, spare a thought for Gary Jensen, the photographer behind these remarkable indoor ice-scapes. Gary was commissioned to document the last days of the Fulton Market Cold Storage Company in Chicago’s meatpacking district – a building used solely for the purposes of freezing food for over 90 years – and must have been bloody freezing while he was doing it. Thank goodness he did though as these images are some of the most eye-popping renderings of ice that we’ve ever seen, allowing an extraordinary glimpse into a world that’s normally closed off to human eyes.
