Olivier Robert : Snow Fences

Olivier Robert : Snow Fences


This series of photographs is part of my ongoing project about the winter in Japan.
These snow fences are very typical elements of the Japanese landscapes in the snowy regions. I’ve always been attracted to their presence on the pristine snow and the way they organize the landscapes, playing elegantly with trees like notes on a musical score.
Although these snow fences seem to have been installed randomly, they are particularly efficient and help to prevent the huge quantity of snow from falling on houses or roads.
The series was shot in Hokkaido where I’ve spent 10 years photographing the minimalist landscape sceneries.
