As a part of the 'Light' series, "Glacier Rift" delves into the captivating cracks and patterns found within glacial landscapes. Inspired by the mesmerizing formations observed during aerial expeditions, I captured the intricate textures and shapes through my lens. Upon returning to my studio, I embarked on a transformative journey to translate these moments onto canvases. Utilizing layers of tracing papers, I crafted the texture of cracks and shadows, each stroke echoing the rugged beauty of the glacial landscape.
