Ice provides an opportunity to experiment with opposites different from what contrast provides. It's because, working with ice sculptures and finding the nuances within the ice structure, is an integral part of what KCBG Photography loves to do. In fact, 'Ice Owl' seen above, was my inspiration for the ShopVida design "Weather".
Frozen water features present and hidden impurities. There's crevasses. I try to capture such flaws and fractures. When ice melts it absorbs energy. Our desire to preserve ourselves, or any ice sculpture, is metaphorically an impossible task. Like ice, we will eventually melt away, but while present, we're magical.
My pieces named "Iced" in the slideshow below, became a feature for the New York State's Centre for Bioethics and Humanities as part of their Healing Muse Journal as well as the Scarborough Big Arts Book. 'Woman of Ice' was published in The Tishman Review.
