Melt is a series of photographs of natural forms found on the snowy ground as they appeared in transitional moments between winter and spring.

Framed in my camera with positive-negative space dichotomy in mind, these images are abstract forms created by nature in its repetitive, regenerative cycle. They are also intended to reflect our desire to animate nature and to identify shapes in the natural environment.

In the winter landscape, these random, natural forms captured my attention, almost becoming live characters, and encouraged me to look again and again at the micro-level of nature’s splendor.
