SNOWBOUND

2003–2007

Photographed over the course of five winters, the landscapes in Snowbound are pristine in their sparse whiteness. The minimalist compositions have a meditative quality that causes the viewer to be drawn into the perfected white-on-white. They exude a neutrality of tone in which the ground recedes into the sky, mirroring the envelopment of human presence by the binding snowfall. 

Accents of color are signs that betray the empty loneliness—they prick through the whiteness, at times with a surreal incongruity. As quiet observations of our human condition, these metaphorical studies perceptively capture notions of transience, loss and enlightenment.
