As an organism of vibration, I love how my eyes and ears detect subtle energies. By photographing mountain ice, I explore nature’s visual energy using a macro lens to collect momentary states of water in winter as found objects. Light and its colors play with freezing hydrogen bonds and oxygen bubblings to produce interesting scenes, which sometimes look abstract for all their reality. The images portray a four-dimensional beauty of frozen water where there is surface texture, inner depth, substance beyond and reflection. These findings encourage my imagination, an effect which the photos can inspire.

This is nature’s pure water, constantly moving and fresh off the bones of the mountain. It is chemical, biological and sensorial magic. Ice develops as a process that fluctuates in and out of being solid, where sculptures and sketches grow and are erased. Splashes, wind and temperature act as paintbrushes. Hiking through the chilled woods as I photograph is a pleasure in itself, and finding such hidden moments of ever-evolving designs magnifies the wonder of being surrounded by Earth’s artistry and my ability to appreciate it.

Please inquire about alternative options of sizes & printing. All are available on fine art paper, canvas, or Vibrachrome (metal sublimated photographs).

10% of sales will be given to enCourageKids, a foundation focused on making children's hospitals a better place to get better.

ag_biography : Lliam Greguez is a macro ice photographer who captures freezing moments of a Catskill Mountain stream, as well as a creative arts therapist in New York City who uses music and photos to engage chronically ill children. He was born on Long island but claims to be an Earthian, a Vibrationalist and a firm believer in the importance of clean air and water to sustain life as we know it. After graduating from Adelphi University Garden City, NY in 1987 with a BS in Music, Summa Cum Laude, Lliam became the Artist in Residence of the Child Life Department at Schneider Children's Hospital for the next 18 years. He was then invited to expand this work, got a Certificate in Creative Arts Therapy from the New School University in 2003 and has continued to work through the enCourage Kids Children’s Foundation in five NYC area Pediatric Hospitals. During this time he also played guitar and recorded with Luis Días, Dominican Folklorist, from 1996 to 2006 in duo and band situations. He was a 2006 Platte Clove Artists-in-Residence for the ERPF Gallery at The Catskill Center, and a sixth exhibit of his ice photos have been hanging on the walls of Bite on 14th St in NYC since July 2016. While recording winter sounds for music production Lliam pulled out a 3MP pocket camera in 2005 because some ice formations caught his eye. Those first images were the start of a photographic exploration; subsequent years each proved unique according to how the forecast interacted with accumulated precipitation. The photos started as an interpretation of each winters offerings and have expanded to an overview of how the season changed over the years.
ag_influences : The natural history of The Catskill Mountains being shaped by Wisconsin glaciation about 25,000 years ago which littered the landscape with numerous rock types and colors. The current state of natural history is also changing the prospect of finding ice.
