Your Daily Photograph, an international auction service, is featuring 'Face Time' on its site. It's an image of a natural ice formation, a seldom-seen, whimsical artifact, discovered near the Tanana River. YDP caters to private and public collectors, is curated by experts, and regularly offers images by the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, Richard Misrach, Andre Kertesz, and Edward Burtynsky.
