DISTILLATIONS

 

On a warm sunny morning in March 1998, I traveled by snowmobile through Independence Pass in Aspen, Colorado. Photographing Aspen’s beautiful snow and ice formations with infrared film allowed me to capture the multi-faceted essence of frozen water, which I could not see with my naked eye.

This journey led to the Distillation of these forms into simple abstract images. When I had ended my journey, all of what I had captured on film had disappeared.
