About the Book
In his latest book of 32 black & white photographs, Nicholas Steiner points his camera at the diverse effects of snow and ice upon landscape, trees, houses, people, animals, buried cars, etc. In an attempt to dispel the miserable feelings that cold, wintry weather elicits in many of us, the author/photographer portrays ever-changing portraits of Mother Nature--from a fierce and powerful force to poetic, gentle beauty tinged with quiet melancholy.
Nicholas Steiner, a German-born, self-taught photographer began taking black & white pictures during his teens in post war Europe. Some of these old images remain his favorites. Subsequent decades allowed time for travel and further development of photographic skills. These pictures reflect Steiner's interest in many, diverse subjects.
