Frozen Immortality

Produced by

Murray Ballard is a Brighton, U.K., -based photographer who for the last five years has followed the practice of cryogenics and the people who choose to freeze themselves in the hopes that technology will allow them to come back to life. While there are advanced facilities for this practice in places such as Michigan and Arizona, people overseas often have to prepare procedures on their own. Ballard tells host Dick Gordon how he has documented these practices in state-of-the-art facilities in the U.S. and across Europe, including in Russia.
