Last week, I dropped off 4 images from my Winter-Frost series for a special spring show at the Memorial Art Gallery, 5/5. It’s an exclusive event with many academics and influentials from Rochester, so I’m excited to see how my work will be received, and whether there will any sales or future opportunities to come out of that. This week I will post the images that will be featured in the Red Bubble gallery for viewing online, along with annotations.
Just dropped off 5 pieces of my Winter-Scape Image Series to the Swan Library in Albion for their upcoming “Art-by-Inches” 6 × 6 art show, my first public art show viewing!!! More about the October reception to follow. Will update the gallery with the pieces showing, as well. Enjoy!
Winter is a magical time to shoot… A time when the ordinary and unremarkable become transformed by frost, ice, snow, and refractive sunlight. Structure and form are revealed in ice. The geometry of the mundane is suddenly revealed in defining outlines of delicate crystal frost. Muddy or turbid colors vibrate and glow against contrasting icy winter whites. Boring weeds become wondrous and dramatic green-frosted etchings.
Morning is the best time to capture winter’s frosty handiwork. Before the sun melts the fragile crystalline coatings that form picturesque pieces on window panes, ground flow, and the dead remnants of fall’s desiduous shedding.
Check back often for updates to the Red Frost collection to see this work in progress. Please include your comments, and feedback!
Ah, my favorite time of year to work in photography is here – Winter! Two wonderful shoots this week – will upload to my Red Bubble portfolio soon to add to the Red Frost Collection. This year I have perfected my frost techniques (pant, pant).
