The photo is from my “Second Nature” series, in which I’m examining the illusion of nature for the second time. The photo was taken after I started to color ice and noticed that the color particles tended to clump together as the cold increased. After some trial and error, a color gradient from deep blue to almost transparent became visible. The picture was taken with the clever use of light and mirrors in the background and conveys the impression that it was taken from deep inside a glacier. I got the basic idea of it years ago while baking, when I happened to notice that flour on a baking tray can look like a mountain landscape with the right light and depth of focus. That’s how the said series came about. Later I sensed the urge to take up the theme again.
