Dynamic, Abstract Photos of Snow and Ice

Paula McCartney

I see winter everywhere, in every environment, in every season, and categorize it by pattern, shape and line rather than merely by substance.—Paula McCartney

A Field Guide to Snow and Ice is Minneapolis based photographer Paula McCartney’s interpretation of winter. She combines images of true snow and ice with forms that mimic these substances; snowfalls, frozen waterfalls, wildflowers, gypsum sand, and snowdrifts. These natural structures become reinterpreted and reimagined, taking on properties both literal and abstract.
