“Frozen Waters” is an artistic research by Ekaterina Smirnova. The intent of this project is to explore the natural phenomena of ice and snow, which directly reflects climate change. From a single snowflake to the fully frozen Hudson river, white plains of Siberia and slowly melting glaciers, revealing the fragile beauty of nature, while noticing the human impact.
       
     
 This multi-dimensional project will be reflected in various media. "Frozen Waters" book will include photography by the artist of snow in its different appearances. The series of books will be available for public. To sign up for the waiting list, please email to k.a.smirnova@gmail.com with the subject "I'd like the Frozen Waters book".
