Here in Minnesota, where we usually spend the post-holidays buried in snow and bundling up against sub-zero temperatures, we experienced a lovely extended autumn that now seems to have skipped us ahead a few calendar months. The last week has felt like a perfect stretch of late March. We’ve been breaking high temperature marks all over the state. I’ve been nostalgic enough, in fact, that I’ve spent several nights hunting through photo books for some of my favorite winter images. Here are some that made the cut.
Vivian Maier, March 18, 1955, New York, NY.
Pentti Sammallahti, Solovki, White Sea, Russia, 1992.
Bruce Davidson, American Elms – The Mall in Central Park, 1994.
Emmet Gowin, View of Rennie Booher’s house. Danville, Virginia, 1973.
Nobuyoshi Araki, from (Sentimental Journey and Winter Journey, 1991)
I am excited to see the images Martin Parr makes in MN.
What are your favorite winter photographs? And is there any one photographer –or even several– that you particularly associate with the season?
