Publisher's Description: 
  
In Thomas Flechtner's photographs, snow becomes a metaphor for timelessness, stillness, peace, distance, and loneliness. Both civilization and the untouched countryside succumb to the white weight of this element, undergoing a transformation equally enigmatic and physically definitive, overwhelmingly magical and bitterly cold. Bereft of people, Flechtner's images of snow-covered places cause the viewer to pine for silence and transparency, for buildings bleached by their coats of hard frost and ice floes broken into unstable shards. In their elegant, often abstracted compositions and the diversity of their shades of white, Flechtner's photographs also admit the poignancy of the artist's perceptive abilities.
