In 1962, Robert Ettinger published The Prospect of Immortality,
a book that gave birth to the idea of ‘cryonics’ – the process of freezing
a human body after death in the hope that scientific advances might
one day restore life. This photo book, by Murray Ballard, is the result
of a nine-year photographic investigation into the practice Ettinger inspired.
