Wind Textures on Blanket Glacier

109 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Blanket Glacier, Columbia Mountains, British Columbia, Canada

Under close study, snow proves to be one of the earth's truly malleable substances. Its density ranges from weightless powder to solid ice, its forms can be soft and subtle, or as jagged as a serrated blade. While temperature, humidity, radiation and time all work to constantly change the snow, perhaps no force has greater power to effect sudden change than the wind. A single hour of wind can completely transform a smooth snowscape into infinite sweeping lines and feathered edges, eventually sculpting the snow into hard masses of endless subtle design.

Atop a peak in Canada's Monashee Mountains on New Year's Eve, I turned my hood to the wind and my camera to the snow to capture some of the nearly Martian landscape as hard winds from the north played with the fresh snow crystals as a child plays with an assortment of Legos. Always building, then destroying, then building anew.

B&W photographic print

Our black & white photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true photographic prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

B&W photographic print in thin black floating frame

This frame style mounts one of our black & white photographic prints inside a handcrafted frame made from the highest quality Italian wood. The mount causes the print to appear to float effortlessly within the frame and the resulting gap between the print and the frame border acts as a visual mat, providing depth and elegance to the piece. Note: to fully show off the beauty of the print, there is no glazing on the front of the piece. Click on the icons below to learn more.

Your piece has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the rear of the frame and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.
