These photos by the Belgium architect François Delfosse are beautiful. He says that the images were taken in a “glacier cave just North of the South Pole”, before adding that they are “viewed from the inside of a plastic bag”.

As images, they’re really stunning and I love the playful reaction they get. If they really were photos of a glacier cave we’d probably be in awe of their beauty, yet because they’re plastic bags it feels odd to think of them as beautiful. I don’t care, I think they are truly gorgeous.

    I’d love to use one of these for my desktop! Any chance of getting a high-res version?

    If you head to Francois’s flickr page you can view them all at a pretty high-res. Here’s one for example.

    Hope that’s some help.
