About Birgit Potthoff

I have followed a path into a world of miniature ice photography. The new landscapes I discover have parallels with the fundamental biological structures of life and the part that humans play in the universe. The images reveal the beauty of structure and colour included in ice; a quiet world of cold and solitude. This approach to image-making can open your mind and foster an intimate relationship with the natural world.

I live in Hamm, Germany with my husband and our 3 children. Increasingly I find there is more time to go out with my camera, to plan exhibitions and to present my “Icescapes”.
