So, this will be a little bit of a change from my usual figure based work. Consistency and depth are great, but a little variety never hurts!
If you don’t get outside when the weather turns cold, winter can be a very long season here in New England. So I make a point of getting out to do things like ski, snowshoe and yes, take photographs. Winter has a certain deliberate pace that allows for concentrated study (assuming you have dressed warmly!) so I find myself taking abstract photographs of the patterns in ice, snow and water. These are some of the first from 2015. We live on a piece of rural property that has a stream running through it along with several small ponds, so I can always find interesting terrain. I try to bring the same vision to the ice as to a human figure; studying its ripples, undulations, borders and surfaces to find some larger meaning.
