Simon Beck’s Snow Art

Snow is a nuisance to most of us. But to Simon Beck, it’s canvas.

Taking on extreme winter conditions, Beck spends days trotting through the French Alps in special shoes to create his incredible snow art. His works are intricate, mathematical and physical, causing many non-artists to question such dedication for such short-lived art.

“Well, a photograph is permanent,” Beck says on his Facebook page. “Without photography, I’m not sure I would have ever gotten into this.”

Much respect to Mr. Beck, a true artist, both by skill and spirit.
