Twelve Hours from Winter to Spring
Home



In a series of twenty-six images made on a flight from Fairbanks, Alaska to Boston, Massachusetts on April 1st, the land transforms as an equivalent. Here, instead of looking upward toward the clouds in search of a mirror for our inner life as Steiglitz so eloquently did, the land below the plane is transformed through technology and the perspective of high-speed air travel to allow time and seasonal cycles to become fluid. The journey from winter to spring begins under a pre-dawn full moon and ends twelve hours later with the ambiguous promise of springtime in Boston’s bleak April landscape.
