In beautiful Nederland lies the dry-iced body of the deceased Bredo Morstøl, a Norwegian man who believed science would one day allow for his reanimation. As such, the town for the past decade, has hosted "Frozen Dead Guy Days," complete with a parade of hearses, a coffin race, and tours of the -100 degree Tuff Shed, where Morstøl's body lies. Nederland native and photographer Aaron Thackeray brings back these photos from the festival on March 5, 2011.
