Sweden’s iconic ICEHOTEL has recently completed a project that will allow it to remain open year-round. Located 125 miles north of the Arctic Circle, the ICEHOTEL has been in operation seasonally since 1989. The hotel is created entirely from snow and ice, and includes 20 guest suites, a bar, and art gallery.
Mumbai, India-born photographer Manjari Sharma takes us into one of the most intimate places in a person’s house. For a few months, she invited people over to her apartment, photographing them while they took a shower. She soon found out that the water washed away any unnerving awkwardness brought on by the camera.
What came next, however, was quite surprising. “The bathroom, formerly a beauty parlour, now became a confessional and I the hair dresser,” she said. “Many of my subjects shared intimate details of their life with me and every new person in the shower became a brand new allegory. With every new visit I had a new protagonist; A new plot and a new parable of hurt and heroic that came undone under that shower – My Shower. I felt a personal mythology was being shared, an independent study that I got addicted to.”
