In the 19th century, Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley struggled to capture the fleeting wonder of snowflakes, successfully photographing the first in 1885 using a surface of black velvet. Though the methodology has improved since then, the awe for the snowflake’s exquisiteness remains.
Like those early photographs, our Snowflake suspends the crystalline, geometric perfection of what Bentley called “tiny miracles of beauty.”
