River Ice 

As a Fermilab scientist we are trained to observe things, imagine how they work, and then create a theory, an experiment, or new technologies.  As a scientist with a lifetime interest in photography, I apply the same process – observe, imagine, create – to my photographic projects. The series “River Ice” documents observations of the frozen Chicago River. Sunlight and city lights are reflected from the ice and, when it’s newly washed and wet, the frozen water also reflects the cityscape. Tall skyscrapers are transformed into two-dimensional geometric forms with splashes of glowing reds and greens and yellows captured within the blueness of the ice floe. It’s magical.
