Akos Major: Photagraphy

The intrigue of snow, or the appearance of what is cold - is the overwhelming combination of bleak but beautiful serenity and peaceful silence. Akos Major presents a powerful series of vast landscapes that have become motionless not only as photographs but as the images convey no busyness nor movement of any kind. Nothing has been stopped in the photographs, everything was already completely still. My favourite of course is the mere section photographed as evidence of precious life - the patch of healthy grass triumphs the cold amongst some defeated cracked ice.
