For the last month, Chris Naka (aka mmsspp) has been recreating scenes from classic romance movies with his boss’s dog, Wrigley. It all started one day when his co-workers at Blue Man Group in Chicago came up with the idea for Naka to pose with the adorable pooch in a famous scene from Titanic.

Inuit waiting at a seal-hole on the ice, from William Edward Parry, Second Voyage, 1824.
Visiting a remarkable iceberg, from John Ross, A Voyage of Discovery, 1819.

Knowledge of the Arctic and Antarctic, gained at such cost, provided a framework for reconstructing the ice of the prehistoric past.
