This photo shows the frozen "image plates" in their raw state.
I'm still working on compiling images for the collection / book titled "Frozen". This image is the first in a series I'm working on where I've literally frozen natural objects in ice. I'm using containers filled with water, arranging the materials, leaving outside overnight to freeze, then I'm photographing them. The individual frozen "image plates" are about 10 inches wide x 15 inches high and are about 3/4 of an inch in thickness. I've just frozen two more, so tomorrow I plan to try something where I use all four in a set-up construction perhaps in a remote part of the woods.
