Peter Strebel

First Snow in October, photographs

Night time snow storm turned the mountain view into a white fairytale land. The sun shining through the clouds gave the snowy plants a fresh white shimmer. The sun made the snow smelt slowly so that while photographing the scene changed constantly. The snow stuck into the plants acrobatically and dropped slowly to the ground when it melted and created natural graphic elements. Japanese ink paintings have had a great influence on my photographic practice. The circle completed with the choice of the printing material. Every sheet of paper is handmade in Japan.
