The Snowflake Man Wilson A. Bentley


Photographs by the first person to capture the
image of a single snowflake with a camera





The year was 1885. By jury-rigging a microscope with
a bellows camera, Bentley was able to capture for the
first time the exquisite delicacy of a snowflake


His groundbreaking 1931 book, 'Snow Crystals',
recorded for posterity the beauty, fragility
and lacy designs of 2,500 snowflakes

Ja, smukt ikke? Mærkeligt at ikke to snefnug er ens...men sådan er det selvfølgelig også med alt levende: dyr, planter...mennesker..og det er jo også 'små (og store!) kunstværker', om man vil! En forunderlig verden...

Maria, it must have been so strange to take the first photo of the snowflakes! We can't imagine it...'we seen it all, haven't we?! (oh, we think we have!)
