Published on December 11, 2012

Familiar textured snowshoe tracks leave intricate, almost filigree shadows on a pristine slope in the French winter slopes. The pattern they leave evokes a mystery – who left these here? And invite the viewer to contemplate them amid the quiet winter’s day.

There is no sign of the artist.
