sun, light, melting ice
the scent of wet stone
The Light and Ice series was inspired by observing the effect the mid-Summer sun had on the pieces of marble in the stone yard where I work. The shadows it created on the stone shifted throughout the day as the sun passed overhead. Sometimes the same piece of stone, viewed in the morning light, looked very different in mid-day and afternoon.
Ice was a good way to show the captured sunlight. During the process of freezing the forms and shapes I was amazed to observe that no two pieces of ice shared the exact opacity. All of these photographs were taken with natural light.
