Waiting For Snowfall by SimonWoodward Waiting For Snowfall by SimonWoodward
Model: Sam Palmer

You can see behind the scenes of the making of this photograph over on my blog.

The idea behind this image comes from the complete impatience I have waiting for the snow to come! We had a very nice Christmas at our house and I ate a great many treats! I won’t deny that there were lonely times as well. My partner Sam was away for Christmas visiting his family.  I had plenty of times to work out some interesting concept ideas in my sketchbook! This is one of them. For me a red breasted robin epitomises all of the emotions I associate with winter and the snow. As I stared out of the window on Christmas morning at a wet and dull day this idea come to my mind. I love that the subject is devoid of identity, I think it symbolises the desire and impatience that each of us have while wondering when snow may fall. I didn’t want to photograph to be about just one person, I wanted it to represent everyone. Although snow comes with the obvious inconveniences and hazards we all have memories of the fun and joy of playing in the snow. A day hasn’t gone by in the past month when someone hasn’t given their snow day prediction to me! I hope it comes soon.
