The year draws to a close.
December sleeps with death. We descend into winter, dwindle on the past and anticipate a cleaner, brighter future where light overpowers the quiet dark.
A few weeks ago I saw Alaska when sun lit the crystal air for a handful of hours each day. Hints of vivid life permeated the still whites and greys. Along with a few curiosities after my return home, those images will close this project. Some were shot on 120 film, others digitally.
Thank you for following my visions, whether brief ends of shaky endeavors or unsteady beginnings. Every exploration meant something and I am disappointed by the flickering finish of this project. These past few months have proven difficult to keep up.
Please stay tuned for the final images as well as the promised end count.
Sun sets at 3pm in late November Fairbanks. Light diffuses a frozen atmosphere.
These images were also shot with yet unprocessed film. I reduced the clarity on these to emphasize a hazy quality in the air. Each breath is crystal clean and strikingly clear, but I prefer to draw attention to the softness of the quality of light.
Gear: Nikon D90, Tokina 12-24 f/4
