Haunting Visions of the Sprawling American West

In 380 B.C.E. the Greek philosopher Plato wrote in Book IV of The Republic, “Any city, however small, is in fact divided into two, one the city of the poor, the other of the rich.” More than two millennia later came the invention of the drone and a photographer named Johnny Miller, who set forth a similar proposal in pictures.

Glass Mountains Glitter In The Israeli Desert

Dotting one of Israel’s most remote desert towns are enormous piles of jagged glass. “Tiny shards, millions of them, piled into rolling hills of green and brown,” Tel Aviv-based photographer Oded Balilty describes.

To some, they might seem nothing more than piles of broken glass in an otherwise barren landscape. But to Balilty, the represent the glittering completion of a symbolic cycle.

“It’s like sand dunes, literally, because glass is made from sand,” Balilty, who photographed the glass for a project called Glass Mountains, told National Geographic. “They put the glasses in the desert. It’s very symbolic. It’s like the bottles are dying there, and they get new life. It’s like ‘from dust to dust.’ So to be in the middle of this circle, it’s something that I really enjoy watching.”

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.

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.
