Luminous Icescapes

  • Photographer
    Andrea Hamilton

Luminous Icescapes series possess a vitreous quality that goes beyond the inherent glassiness of ice, speaking of the alchemic nature of the frosty terrain. Sky, rock, shingle, and earth fade into one another, a vista of desaturated greys, punctuated by crystalline structures. Like glass, I am fascinated by these images as they embody simultaneous beauty, danger, and fragility. I believe that Luminous Icescapes is a body of work that not only contemplates unique, breathtakingly beautiful, frightening, and alien landscapes but also engages profoundly with photography as an artistic practice.

Andrea Hamilton, a graduate of Brown University and Oxford University studied photography at Central Saint Martins, Photofusion and traditional print methods at the Black and White School. Hamilton also runs AH Studio, an art and design space where she runs a series of talks and exhibitions particularly related to themes of art, design, music and environment.

She is an ambassador for the Blue Marine Foundation, The Global Planet Authority and The Moons Symphony Project.
