Overview

When I started photographing snowflakes, I learned that most show the wear and tear of their travels through the atmosphere. Brushes with other snow crystals, changes in humidity and temperature, the effects of sublimation and the trauma of landing on earth all take a random toll on their crystalline structure. Like us mortals, snowflakes show the wear and tear - but also polish and glitter - of the cumulative effects of existence. They emerge from their experience unique, irregular, complex. They conform to some general plan, but are far from perfect crystals. And so the name of this book - Imperfect Symmetry. Imperfect Symmetry is a collection of thirty-five high magnification snowflake photographs that reveal the exquisit detail of the individual snow crystal. All of the photographs in this book are of actual snowflakes - taken as they fell from the sky.
