Stories Behind the Images:
“This is "Snowbound", from my "Moods" book published in 1980. It was photographed by a frozen waterfall, in New Hope, Pennsylvania, 1979.
I spontaneously had the idea to shoot a model after having seen the frozen waterfall, but I didn't want the model to just be standing in the snow totally nude. So I needed some type of fabric to continue the flow of the snow, and to be sheer enough to capture the subtleties of a bare body. My solution was that I borrowed some sheer curtains from the windows of an old inn that we were staying at that evening.
So it all successfully came together, especially because I had a model who was willing to actually stand there barefoot during the shooting. And yes, I did return the curtains."
