Show Description: Bulletproof ice, loads of snow and extended lengths of sub-zero temps: the winter of 2016-17 was a landscape photographer’s dream. Missoula on Ice features twelve large-format fine art canvas and metal photographic prints from a historic winter in The Garden City.
With the guiding principle of ‘what makes today different from any other day’, I set out to find the places and moments that illustrated the serene severity of the winter of 2016-17. Tiptoeing on the Clark Fork River’s Ice, trudging through waist-deep snow on the north face of Mount Sentinel, performing jumping jacks along Rattlesnake Creek to stay warm, the photoshoots were always small packages of adventure. A true joy.
Showing April/May 2017 at The Public House in Missoula. Private gallery showings available upon request.
