Caleb Cain Marcus A Portrait of Ice: Book release & Metropolitan Museum of Art acquisition
Caleb Cain Marcus, Fox, New Zealand, Plate IV.
NEW YORK, NY.- Damiani announced a new monograph of color photographs by Caleb Cain Marcus, entitled A Portrait of Ice. Three images from the series have been acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The book will be released on September 30th. This is the artist’s second monograph in collaboration with Damiani.

Caleb Cain Marcus’s new series, A Portrait of Ice, depicts the glaciers of Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, New Zealand and Alaska. The essays are by curator and critic Marvin Heiferman and Robin Bell, a senior researcher at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Heiferman writes, “How curious that as glaciers around the world recede, so, too, does the materiality of the photographic medium in our increasingly digital age. As a result, it’s difficult to look at photographs from this project, even as we respect and marvel at all that seems to be so solid, and not feel a simultaneous sense of awe and nervous anticipation about a future we can barely imagine.”

Heiferman continues, “It is the painterly quality of these stark images, as much as photographic ones, that makes the work seductive. The woozy atmospheric conditions that prevail look as if they are air-brushed or stippled in. Images of crenellated landscapes that evoke the surfaces of the brain or the moon, give the impression of being dusted with pigment, like pastels.”

Caleb Cain Marcus’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, High Museum of Art, Center for Creative Photography and George Eastman House, among others. Cain Marcus was born in Colorado and currently lives and works in New York City.
