Paula McCartney’s Photographic Twist On Bird-Watching

Birds in the wild are difficult to photograph. So when I saw these photographs by Minneapolis-based Paula McCartney, I was impressed by her closeness to the animals (although just the right distance to have the viewer fooled, at least at first), as well as the inclusion of the environment. “This seems realistic,” I thought, “only slightly better. She must be a really quiet and really still person.”

Dynamic, Abstract Photos of Snow and Ice

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.
