Yik Keat Lee’s favorite photographs are the ones that give him what he calls the “flashback effect.” No matter where in the world he is, he makes pictures in order to fast to moments of adventure and intensity before they slip away. Brief recollections can last forever if he’s there to photograph them.

For our latest group show, we asked you to submit your best photographs of snow. Curated by Feature Shoot Founder Alison Zavos, the winning collection takes us a tour of winter wonderlands around the globe, from the well-known, like Iceland, Saint Petersburg, or Aspen, Colorado, to the less-traveled, like Himachal Pradesh in India or small-town Pennsylvania.

Robert Frost famously wrote the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” in a matter of minutes. It was also the poem he thought would best stand the test of time. The exposures used to capture these scenes range from a fraction of a second to a few minutes, but like Frost’s words, they capture what is timeless, essential, and beguiling about snow.

The weather forecast here in New York does not indicate a snowfall on Christmas, but somewhere in the world, the ground will indeed blanketed in sparkles.

It was by chance that led Milwaukee-based photographer Jon Horvath to a small Idaho town called Bliss, located in Gooding County. His resulting series “This is Bliss” gives a unique insight into the town, with its population of around 300. We speak to the photographer to find out more about the project and his motivations behind it.

When Hengki Koentjoro makes pictures, he relishes loneliness. Being solo with only the rustle of the wind and the rolling of the tides isn’t painful; it’s reassuring and life-sustaining.

“The farm was my giant playground,” photographer Tamie Steffen-Hornstein remembers of a childhood spent in rural Southwest Minnesota. She spent her days in the treehouse, on her raft in the creek, or working beside her father.

Portland photographer and pediatrician Calvin Chen’s life is punctuated by a thousand tiny moments of revelation. In both of his professions, he has examined child’s play with the delicacy and earnestness, allowing the imagination of his subjects to fill in the frame.

Keeper

Florida-based photographer Erika Masterson’s Parts of the Earth series started with a portrait she took of her niece with a pheasant (Refuge), leading to Keeper – the girl with the coyote. After entering several of her images into competitions and winning, Masterson continued the theme, finding the animals through clients, collectors and a taxidermy store located in Miami called ‘Art by God’.

Photographer seeks answers in a 300km journey from Chengdu to the sea

“This water confuses me.
When I’m by the river I find myself wondering:

Who am I?
Where am I?
What am I?”

Another river by Roni Horn

Photographer Wei Wu’s final project at the London College of Communication (LCC) and resulting book is the result of a solitary walk from the source of the Funan river in her hometown Chengdu in the Sichuan province of China to its mouth. And yet, there is more to this series than the arduous 300km journey that led to its creation. Though originally pursued as a dedication to her grandparents and as a nostalgic revisiting of her past, the artist learned more about her present self than she had initially envisioned, walking through familiar and foreign terrain with the time to reflect. Meeting Myself Coming Back is about one individual’s quest for answers, our place in the world and our relationship with others. Despite its introspective nature, the imagery and evolution of thought found within the photo book’s pages touch upon an essence with which we can all likely resonate.

Rare Phobias Come to Life in Disturbing Collages

Diplophobia (fear of double vision)

fearoftechnologyfinal

Technophobia (fear of technology)

A estimated 18% of the United States adult public suffers from a diagnosable anxiety disorder. 8.7% have specific phobias, including common ones like claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces), agoraphobia (fear of crowded or open public spaces), or acrophobia (fear of heights).

There are also those ailed by more peculiar phobias, often centered around particular objects. In collaboration with VSCO, collage artist David Delruelle selected a group of these rare fears to illustrate in black and white.

The Magic of Wintertime in Finnish Lapland

When she was a little girl, photographer Tiina Törmänen built castles out of snow. She spent her childhood in Finland’s Southern Lapland, surrounded by lakes and forests, and each winter, she dug tunnels, doorways, and rooms, illuminated by flickering candlelight. She sang songs to her beloved dog Nappi on dark nights.

Törmänen was a child of nature; she played with the dogs more than she did other children. She picked wild berries and mushrooms while her family fished and hunted and grew their own vegetables.

After an Edenic childhood, the artist moved to Helsinki at sixteen. She survived an abusive relationship, one that she feels robbed her of her teenage years, a time that should have been happy but was instead plagued by fear.
