THE MACRO-PHOTOGRAPHY OF ALEXEY KIJATOV

Snowflakes teach us many lessons when we’re children. It teaches us about the fractal beauty that lies beneath all things; it teaches us about uniqueness, patterns, and infinity. But for some reason, we forget the secret beauty of the snowflake. When we look out the window on a snowy day, we stop seeing a scintillating sea of microscopic crystals too vast to count. We just see a cold, dreary slurry, dirtied by boots and melting in the sun.

Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov might just teach you to appreciate the geometric beauty of snowflakes again. Using very simple techniques, his macro-photography makes individual snowflakes look like otherworldly castles, frozen in space as well as time.
