My work explores the cycles and rhythms of diverse ecosystems and weather patterns, in order to find their place -metaphorically- in the dialogue between landscape photography and our changing relationship with nature.
White, was shot in severe weather conditions during a historic, record-breaking storm that took place in the American Midwest in April 2018. These record snowfalls are linked to climate change. Warmer conditions are leading to more moisture in the air and significantly increased annual precipitation and extreme weather events. This was the second largest recorded April snowfall in Minnesota and the largest April snowfall in 130 years.
Beauty in these photographs obscures the reality beyond the surface, suggesting the simple and idyllic but at the same time reflecting a darker more complicated truth.
