A Circle in the Andes -1972

I like that this piece relies mostly on the natural beauty of the landscape. The only hint that anyone is there is the placed stone circle. In some ways it seems like an intrusion or disruption. Like it isn’t supposed to be there. At the same time it brings the piece a little warmth. The sense of knowing I’m not alone here, under the intimidating mountain and in this vast expanse. The black and white really helps show the contrast between the top 1/3 and bottom 2/3. The scattered snow packs helps subtly blend the two together.
