Cryonics involves the freezing of a deceased person's body in the hope of being revived in the future.
Cryopreservation is becoming more and more popular with some individuals paying vast sums of money to have their remains frozen upon their demise. Those without as much to spend can also opt for a cheaper alternative - to have only their head preserved.
Over five years, photographer Murray Ballard has been given unprecedented access to the world of cryonics, which involves freezing a dead person's body in liquid nitrogen until, proponents argue, technology has advanced enough to bring them back to life.
