Russian Winter emerged into a series of prints containing whiteness and emotion. This particular print is named in honour of a former student of mine who was born in Russia and happened to be an orphan. She was adopted into a Canadian family. The original photo was taken in Parksville, BC on March 4, 2006. The White in this print reminds me of the snow in the film Dr. Zhivago (1965), which was shot in the cold Russian winter. I have allowed this image to become the signature piece for my work.
