8.5" x 11" Archival Pigment Print - First Edition of 25.
This image was captured during a spring snowstorm (not uncommon in Canada!). After a long, cold winter, April came and the land began to thaw, readying itself for spring. However, winter had one more surprise in store for us. The snow fell thick and heavy, and quickly accumulated in the trees. I instantly knew that the contrast offered by the dark pine forest and bright snow would make a great black and white image. I have been shooting a lot of film recently and have fallen in love with the various types of film grain that characterize the medium. Wanting to replicate this, I used a flash to illuminate the falling snow to create a natural grain pattern, adding depth and character to the final image.
