Trekking with snowshoes over stark white countryside and aided by intrepid volunteers, photographer-artist Sonja Hinrichsen walks for hours to make unique designs in the snow.
An HuffPost article by Katherine Brooks reports that these beautiful creations can take up to a few days to complete with the help of up to 60 volunteers. From an airplane, they transform a landscape into a fascinating confluence of images.
You can view more of these remarkable land paintings or, as she calls them, “interventions in the environment,” on her website. If you have the opportunity to see them in person, look quickly. They disappear when the snow drifts or temperatures rise and live on only in her photographs.
