Spring Series

For this project, Jim Brandenburg chose to look at his familiar environment from a new angle. Revisit the northwoods and the prairies of Minnesota -USA, that he knows in his bones, and joyfully celebrate their beauty. He gives himself the limitation of one season, this time it is the spring of 2014 : he starts on the spring equinox and finishes on the summer solstice. He delivers here 1 picture a day, or 93 pictures for a season of complete transformation where temperatures will go from -30 F to 40F above and awaken nature.
