Lake Baikal, situated in Eastern Siberia, is the largest freshwater lake on the planet. In mid winter temperatures plummet to as low as -40 degrees Celsius freezing the surface of the lake to a thickness of 2 metres in places. A magical frozen world is created with stunning images to be found. Fractured ice covered in snow, hardy poplar trees surviving the winter, sculptural ice sitting on a frozen sea to mini icicles hanging in deserted caves. Daragh traveled to Baikal in February 2018 and is currently working on a body of work that he hopes to exhibit in 2019. He is returning to Baikal in February 2019 with a view to completing this work.
