Every year, Harbin, China's northernmost major city and one of the world's coldest cities, hosts the Harbin Ice Festival. Jonathan Browning of Foreign Policy photographs some of the over ice sculptures at the festival.
Harbin, known as "Ice City" - a nickname well-earned - for winters that are dry and bitterly cold, with a average in January of only degrees celcius. Workers install a tree with lights near buildings made from blocks of ice.
