Years ago, when I was still studying photography, we were given an assignment to pick an old photographer and recreate a photo with a contemporary approach. Today I still have this reflex when I look at other photographers’ work. This is what came to my mind when I set on the series “Luminous” paying homage to Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley whose lifelong pursuit of capturing snow crystals led to the discovery that really no two snow flakes were alike. Snowflake’s persistent genius and pioneering photographic work is a bright example of early twentieth century photography that experimented with depicting reality objectively. But even reality can be imagined.
